Receiving duplicate emails

Receiving duplicate emails

A few months ago I started receiving duplicates of almost all of the emails I get in my yahoo inbox. Most recently I have been getting anywhere from 2-6 copies of the same email with almost every email that I receive.

Sometimes when emails duplicate like this it's due to syncing issues between the account and a mail app. If you access the account through a non-Yahoo app, you may want to remove the account from the device and re-add it to resolve any future syncing issues.

I don’t know what kind of non-Yahoo app you would be referring to but I always access my mail via mail.yahoo.com.
