still receiving duplicate emails

Off and on multiple times any given day, I am receiving duplicate emails that I delete and they keep coming back to my Inbox.  Yahoo does not seem to have an equitable solution for this issue.  Is there any solution for this.  I have been using yahoo for years now.  Please advise.

 

Most thanks,

Re: still receiving duplicate emails

@seewig,

The duplicate emails when using a third party email client is due to that client duplicating the emails when pulling the from our servers. You would need to contact Microsoft for assistance with their product.

@gikyo123,

Are you receiving these duplicate emails at yahoo.com or are you using a third party client such as Outlook?

@gikyo123,

When you delete these emails how long does it take for them to reappear?

Anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours usually.

Next time those emails appear, can you try clearing your trash after deleting them to see if that helps them stay gone?

Your solution appears to have worked.  How does emptying my trash can get those duplicate emails from coming back??  Certainly a strange solution in my mind.  Anyways most thanks!!

Hi @gikyo123

 

Clearing the trash folder removes the information from the account, so that it can't move back to the inbox.

 

I'm glad this resolved the issue for you!

 

Thanks!

Re: still receiving duplicate emails

I use Windows Live Mail (12) and I am  receiving endless duplicates lates was 8 identical duplicates. When I eliminate previous emails, they still come back. In the "send and receive " tool I can see some 4000 emails waiting to be delivered, and the totals hardly ever go down. Only if I totally delete a certain time period, it stops delivering.

Re: still receiving duplicate emails

back to add  more: meaning to say that "it stops delivering these emails of a time period" the others are still mysteriously multiplying
