Re: How do I fix it so that I don't get doubles of every email I receive?

I tried to replicate and I was unable to get the verification email to arrive in the test email box in order to verify it as the forwarding address.  Although I could not do the verification step, it still allowed the forwarding without the verification.  And it did create duplicates.

 

Another reason for why I have stopped using the rogers yahoo account - it really is a very poorly managed email system and if major companies like Rogers and others dropped them, they would die.  I suspect the current offer to buy them, is to just get the customer base, not the service.

 

But hope this turns out to be the solution for @ptittefolle  It will be easier than the one suggested on the Internet that I reported above.

 

Again, interested in knowing if this turns out to be the issue.  It certainly is an odd one, and in absence of the verification email, it shouldn't, in principle even be able to forward to its same account.  I know of no other email system that allows you to email to your own account.  As I said, this one is just weird and poor design.

Re: How do I fix it so that I don't get doubles of every email I receive?

It is now 2019 but this relates to the 2017 discussion. 

Last week my wife indicated that she would see her Rogers email in her SENT FOLDER   twice. She said that she did not change her settings.  I set up her Rogers email in OUTLOOK 2016 a couple of years ago on her PC and there were no problems until now.  I tried sending an email to myself (I don't use Rogers email but I do have an account). Sure enough, the email showed up immediately in her SENT folder, then about 1 minute later the same identical email with the same time showed up in her SENT folder as well.  I only received the ONE test email.   I tried Google for suggested OUTLOOK fixes and it seems that all the OUTLOOK settings are okay.  I also use Outlook so all my settings are similar and I don't get double sent indications in my SENT folder.  

I was wondering if anyone @borford @Gdkitty  had any suggestion regarding the IMAP settings for Rogers/Yahoo?  She does have an identical @yahoo.com  email address.  Perhaps the Yahoo servers can not distinguish between @rogers.com and @yahoo.com  so she gets two SENT indications.   All her emails are on her PC so I can delete all her server emails as BS suggested.  Before I do that however, I wanted to ask those who dealt with this issue before.

Greetings and good morning @User14!

 

Try this...

 

Go to File > Account Settings > Manage Profiles. Click the Email accounts button, double click on your account then click More settings.

 

There's a setting here with a tick box labelled "Do not save copies of sent items". If this setting isn't turned on, turn it on and then try another test email to see if the duplicate appearing in Sent Items stops.

 

Regards,

RogersCorey

Thanks Corey,

That helped me to figure it out.  I clicked/checked:  "Don't save copies of sent items"  (see IMAP Account Settings below),   but read on for the Outlook Settings...

This stopped the DOUBLE emails showing up in the SENT FOLDER from the Rogers/Yahoo server.  BTW The receiver only gets one message, not two. 

Meanwhile there is still a copy kept in your SENT FOLDER triggered by the Outlook Settings.

(See Outlook Options below)

Note: She also said she only got DOUBLE copies of her sent emails when it was an ORIGINAL email. She didn't get DOUBLE copies when "replying" to someone. FWIW, because I didn't verify this. It is back to what she wants.

Cheers.

Re: How do I fix it so that I don't get doubles of every email I receive?

I'm using Outlook on POP and for many years I have not seen any sent items ending up in Webmail when I use Outlook on my computer.  If I create a message and send it in Webmail, then the e-mail (obviously?) ends up in my Webmail sent folder (as read - not in bold).

 

Since November 1, 2019 the e-mails I create/send in Outlook are now ending up in the Webmail Sent folder.  They show up there in bold (unread).  This is  "new" and Rogers/Yahoo must have changed something on November 1.

 

If I create a new message in Webmail, it doesn't end up in Outlook Sent folder. This is exactly as it was before, but I would actually prefer if these did end up in Outlook (I don't use Webmail much - only when I travel or to check the spam folder about once a week to see if there is any real mail there).  I realize that if I changed to IMAP things would change, but I prefer to stay on POP for several reasons.

 

I don't get any duplicates as mentioned in the posts above by @User14 , however, I thought I'd mention that something has changed at Rogers/Yahoo (POP)

My wife doesn't create a new messages in Webmail, so she hasn't mentioned sent emails not ending up in her Outlook Sent folder.  I'll go to the Yahoo website and test it and let you know. I am sure she would like her emails to end up in her Outlook Sent folder using Outlook or Yahoo webmail. 

It seems regardless of IMAP or POP, something has changed at the Rogers/Yahoo server end because her SENT emails now show up in her Outlook SENT FOLDER as unread (BOLD).  She wants me to fix this!   I tried reversing the Outlook and Yahoo Server settings to see if the emails show up from the server in Outlook as read (unbold). They still end up unread (BOLD) regardless of the settings.

Anyone know a trick to make her sent emails automatically show up as read (unbold) in her Outlook folder?

Re: How do I fix it so that I don't get doubles of every email I receive?

Regarding tests using OUTLOOK and my @rogers.com email address, I found that I received two copies of the email in my Outlook Sent Folder. (Basically, the problem my wife initially complained about. Solution mentioned above.) 

One sent copy indicated "read" and the other "unread".  So that's new! The Lithium folks must have changed something at the server end to cause this duplication. The "unread" would arrive after the "read" copy but it would appear in folder before the "read" copy. For TEST 8 note that I did the screen capture (image below) before the second copy arrived about 20-45 seconds later.  I assume the "read" copy is generated by Outlook settings, and the "unread" copy is generated by the Yahoo-Rogers IMAP or POP settings.
