Running Outlook 2007 to share e-mails between multiple users (they all use the same POP3 account) we have set them to leave the e-mails on the server and one computer is set as the master and deletes the messages after 2 days (gives enough time for everyone to synch the message before it is deleted). However, on one PC it keeps downloading the messages multiple times (each time they send/receive). Outlook can't recognize the fact that the e-mail already exists in the PST?!

Regardless of the reason, I've been looking online and seeing lots of people facing the exact same issue but can't seem to find an actual solution. Is there a way to create a rule, or anything else, that can either prevent the duplicates or automatically delete them once they appear?

Not possible to move to IMAP? I didn't know anyone still used POP!!! blush.gif

I guess there must be a way to set a rule to check the MessageID in the headers and delete a duplicate.

You might have to do it in code.

I can't help much more than that because I last used Outlook in 2000!!

Thanks David. I will look these over and see what I can come up with.
