I have retired from my job, and used to have my RSS feeds within the OWA folder, so I tried to move them to another email account folder. For whatever reason they weren't refreshing so I created new feeds. Now. every time I open Outlook 2016, they are duplicated under the account. I delete the duplicates, but they come right back. Guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

*addendum* It adds a folder every time I open Outlook, up to 4 now.

I am not sure if I created this problem when I tried to copy the RSS feeds from my previous company OWA and then removed that account. As well, my profile still holds that old company email address. Since this has had 334 views and there are LOTS of similar issues online, this may be one of those issues best kept secret.

What do you mean that you removed the account but your profile still have the old address? My suspicions are that you have the feeds in twice.

There is an issue where you might get duplicates if the option is enabled to treat updated articles as new - that will redownload a new copy of the item if the publisher updates it.

Gosh, Diane, I didn't get a reply notification. The problem WAS that the folders were duplicating themselves probably from my feeble attempt to move the folder from the OWA account. I completely removed and re-installed Office, but that didn't fix it (and all the info came back anyway). But then I removed the email account where it was happening, and then put it back and now it works as expected. Crazy huh?

I'm surprised that just removing the account fixed it - but outlook can behave really weird at times... who knows what lurks in the evil mind of Outlook. LOL
