Live Mail won't stop downloading messages

This is a problem that has happened twice now. It starts downloading messages, it will download the same message multiple times, and with in a few minutes there will be 2 to 3 thousand messages., but it keeps going.the last time this happened I had to uninstall Live Mail, then go into the local data files and remove everything that has anything to do with Live Mail. Then reinstall Live Mail. Then it worked fine again. It has works fine for 3 or 5 months now. It worked fine 2 days ago. Today whin I brought it up, I had to reset it up. And then it started downloading thousands of messages again. Can't figure out what is causing this to happen. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

I had the same problem a few years ago. I think that the way I solved it was to
Live mail>accounts>properties>advanced....Leave copy on server should be checked.
Let me know if this works

Thanks for the replay, but that is not the problem. I know how to set it to delete the messages off the server. No this problem is it starts downloading, ant to won't stop till I get the error message that the hard drive if full. If I let it go it will continue downloading forever. It's not a virus, or Trojan, but something is changing in the data files. Not sure. This is not a normal problem.
