when I opened outlook 2007 this morning I started to receive 18,000 old

emails that were previously deleted. this is taking hours to receive and then

delete. How can I stop them so I can get back to work and prevent this in the

future.

Thanks

What type of email account? it sounds like you are leaving mail on the

server and something made outlook think you hadn't downloaded them. The only

way to prevent it is to leave mail on the server.

Or set it to delete them when you delete them from outlook, if you want to

prevent this from happening again.

Did you make a new profile or a new pst file? Either of those will cause

Outlook to re-download everything. A virus scanner scanning all inbound mail

could also cause issues with it.

"Or set it to delete them when you delete them from outlook, if you want to

"prevent this from happening again."

and how do you set it to delete from both the server and outlook?
