Duplicate Hotmail emails downloaded - Digiti123 - 02-18-2015

I have tried pretty much all the google fixes for this annoying problem which only affects Hotmail. All other accounts are working normally. Any help will be appreciated. I am using Windows 7 64 bit with 8 gigs ram and quadcore processor. Thanks.

Have you tried to disable leaving copy message on server?

Go to 'Tools'>'Accounts'>'Mail'> Your Hotmail Account> 'Properties' Tab

Find there 'Leave a Copy of messages on server' checkbox and uncheck it.

and check the new messages from now and on if are downloaded normally or double.

I tried that fix previously but to no avail.

i suggest you to delete dbx files, so outlook express will recreate them.
also try unchecking "send and receive messages at startup" on tools>options

I renamed the Inbox.dbx to Inbox.dbxold then restarted Outlook Express. In addition I had previously disabled "send and receive on startup" which did not help either.

Those are the settings I have right now.

i suggest you to try with a different email client like Thunderbird to chack if the problem is Outlook Express (email cleint) or Hotmail (your email service).
