Lately, one mail account is receiving duplicate e-mails by the thousand (>20k so far). Nothing happens until I open that inbox, then the mails come pouring in. I get anywhere from 2 to about 10 copies of each e-mail. This does not happen with other email accounts on this copy of SeaMonkey.


I'm using SeaMonkey 2.49.1, with Win10 x64.

It seems to. I am running the alt extension to remove duplicates; so far it appears to FIND them, but no sign that it's actually DELETING them. Meanwhile, the downloading of dupes seems to have stopped.

Tried it again, and this time it worked.

Also unchecked "leave messages on server."

Thanks.
