Windows 7: email sending many copies of mail

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
email sending many copies of mail

I use Windows Live Mail 2011 essentials. I really like the plain Jane Windows Live mail but got ropped into this type in auto windows update. Originaly i just removed it thinking that the Plain Jane mail program would be re-instated but it was not, could not find just windows live mail so had to put it back if I wanted to use email not web mail.

Above tells you where I am at as far as email is concerned.
Now my problem.I have setup several groups of email messages that I send messages to, as well as to just one person. Suddenly in the last month or so I have been getting reports of some addressees are getting as many as 50 of the same message, orther not. Sometimes they are sent to one of the groups some are not, some are forwards. I have communicated with Cox, my high speed interent access, they tell me use only web mail not Windows Live Mail. I really do not like web mail, but will start using it if I have to. I ALLWAYS send BCC for a message with more than 3 addresses because of emails containing lots of addresses for capturing the addresses for spam.

Sorry this is so long but felt I needed to explain my problem.

Please try as follows.

Open Live Mail. Click Tools > Options > tab on SEND > and uncheck the first box under Sending... Where is reads "save copy of sent messages in the 'sent items' folder.

Then go to Tools > Options and remove the tick from leave message on server.

After that remove the tick from 'break apart messages more than 100 kilobytes'

Good luck and did this help?
