OE5: "leave messages on server" problems...

Post by Paolo Scaffard » Wed, 02 Jun 1999 04:00:00



I have Outlook Express 5 installed and i have setup an e-mail account. I
have enabled the option "leave messages on server" because i want to read
and delete them at home later.

The problem is that every time i check the mail server OE5 downloads all
messages from server, not the latest that i havent read yet.

Can you help me? (please answer me in e-mail, too)

Bye,
Paolo Scaffardi.

Do you have a pop3uidl.dat file?

Try re-naming to pop3uidl.old and try the download twice.

For help with Outlook Express 5 (part of the IE5), use this newsgroup:
okexpress

The POP3UIDL.DAT (OE5: POP3UIDL.DBX) file may be corrupted.  This is used to track previously
downloaded messages when you leave messages on the server.  However, the file gets updated even
if you aren't leaving messages on the server.  Delete the file with Outlook Express or Internet
Mail closed.  The next time all mail on the server will be downloaded.  But after that the file
should function correctly again.
