Double copies of all emails

    I'm using Outlook 2007 in Vista. Yesterday, I made an adjustment to leave a
    copy of my emails on my server (so I can access them on an out-of-town
    trip). I've done that before with no problem. But after doing it, I
    started getting two copies of each email with every download. My desktop
    Outlook is set to download new emails every five minutes automatically.

    It may be something other than the "leave a copy of each email on the
    server" change, because I tweaked and untweaked a couple of other things
    trying to find that process (I'm new to Outlook).

  4. What I would suggest you do is set up folders on your webmail
    application and move emails from your "inbox" to them. That way,
    when you use Outlook to download new messages, they will be stored
    away and Outlook won't see them in your inbox. Or, better yet, if
    your webmail program is robust enough, you may be able to set
    something up to mark them as "read" within the app. This could have
    the same effect. Pleae note: I am not an Outlook user, but I do
    use webmail occasionally to check my email when I am not home and what
    I described works quite well with my email application (Evolution on
