It never happened to me, except when I was on holidays and had an unreliable internet connection. When the connection breaks down before all emails are fetched from the server, you will get the messages that made it to your PC a second time the next time you try to fetch your mails...

like fobicodam says, it happens all the time, but we can't live with it our customers are really angry

I rode in google the problem is alias, postfix creates same message id and outlook doesnt undertand it and download same message twice,three or more times

i'd really need help to solve this issue.

thanks

Strange... if you download a mail by pop3 it normally gets deleted on the server... so I think this is quite strange that it downloads the email multiple times....

He has it set in outlook to "keep messages on server" With this option enabled, you can download the same email to multiple client machines and you would also have to check another setting [in Outlook] to specify when you want the emails deleted from the server (such as a specific number of days, etc.).
