    I've had this Powerbook for two years now and have never had any problems with Mail until today. Suddenly this morning I had over 100 e-mails coming in, and they were all old ones from the past month.
    It was downloading them all from the server all over again. I deleted them and an hour later it did it all again, so I went to the server and deleted all the mails.
    All through the day, whenever I got an e-mail, I'd get it again, half an hour later, and again, and again.

    Just popped into preferences and set it to delete them from the server as soon as they are downloaded, but has anyone else ever expoerienced this ?

    What's up with it ?

    That happened to me a month or so ago so I deleted the Mail PLIST file and subsequently re-entered all my account details. It's been fine ever since. :)
