Windows 7: Windows Live Email

Windows Live Email

I am using Windows Live email as I used to use Outlook Express with XP.

It works fine with my email provider, only it works too well. Every box I've set up with a message rule to sort incoming, I get duplicates of everything.

The main in-box doesn't. Is there a setting I've overlooked? Or duplicated?

Thanks,
Hank

Can you tell us more about the rules you have set up?

Most of the rules sort incoming Yahoo forum messages which are set to find the string [forum name] in the subject line. All of those notices are delivered to my email provider and I download with Windows Live.

And they are all arriving in duplicate. If I check email with my browser client, they reside on the server as one message each. Collect them with Windows Live and somehow they duplicate in each of the sorted folders.

I set the same kind of rules with OE and never had this problem.

In other words, if you turn off the message rule, the inbox shows one email. If you turn it on to sort into "special folder", you get two copies in "special folder" and the original email is no longer in the inbox. Correct?

Rules off = one message. And there is only one message if I check the email on the server side with the browser client.

Part of the problem is I set up email identity for my personal Internet domain which proxies email through my IP email. So if someone sends my an email through the domain, it arrives in the IP email inbox in Windows Live and the domain inbox in Windows Live.

If I use the IP email browser client, there is only one copy from the domain email address. If I retrieve that message in Windows Live it sorts a copy to the IP email inbox and the domain email inbox.

Ideally, I would like Windows Live to place the domain email into the domain inbox when it downloads from the server.

It can only associate the mail with the folders for the pop3 account that it last got them from directly. WLM doesn't know where the emails originally came from only where it got them from. You shouldn't allow a situation where the same mail can be downloaded from 2 different pop3 accounts.
