    I can not say for sure, but on my MacBook the problem was NEVER fixed. I hat this since upgrading to 10.6 and I tryed all the tips and hints that I found here and with google anywhere in the net. Sometimes the problem seemed to be fixed, e.g. after deleting the MessageUidsAlreadyDownloaded3 file. (Btw: Disabling Time Machine or excluding the mentioned file on my MacBook helped nothing.) But always after the next reboot there came the mails again, and now I turned on and off my computer for five times and I can say the issue SEEMS to be gone.

    Well ... granted, premature euphoria might yield to latter day humiliation ... but ..

    It is looking good on 10.6.2 so far. Admittedly it isn't even the next day yet. But I've taken the "brave" step of setting my download interval back to my preferred 15 minutes (been using 1 hour since not long after the start of this problem - survival technique, you know ... ). It's been on that setting now for several hours, and no duplicates as yet

    Guess I'll go and peel the foil off the champagne bottle ...

    Well alas .. I did indeed speak too soon. Just got another duplicate -- even though it did stay away for a while.

    Guess we'll be continuing to get to know one another really well on this thread for another millenium or two anyway ...

    .... and now it's the next day ... and ...

    Definitely not fixed in 10.6.2. Usual number of duplicates after initial startup and mail check. (And that's with 10.6.2 plus trashing the MessageUIDs thingy and excluding same from TM.)

    Windoze 7, anyone?

    I think you have to delete all duplicates first and see if the problem happens. By updating to 10.6.2 I don't think it takes out your existing duplicates in your mailbox. Delete existing duplicates and see if the problem comes back. Mine hasn't so far, keeping fingers crossed!

    Duplicates already deleted from computer and server ... and still the problem recurs.

    You have blasphemed. Plan to see your sorry self banned from any Apple forum.

    Same issue with me. Before SL no problem. 24 hours after, I get duplicates every day. I upgraded last Friday and its been a constant plague.

    SO annoying. It makes my Mac unusable for mail. It is disheartening to see so many posts and NO resolution yet.

    Very depressing, I had hoped to finally get some resolution tonight.

    Please explain -- the update for 10.6.2 was not released until late this past Monday afternoon. Why do you reference an update from last Friday?

    I've installed 10.6.2 but I've basically resorted to keeping my MacBook off during the week (it's a personal computer) and only using it when I'm home on the weekends, and making sure the iPhone mail application is not active as I am using it. I periodically wipe email off of my Yahoo server to avoid duplicates. I will see if not wiping the Yahoo account leads the problem to come back...

    Duplicate email issues for many of our users since upgrading to Snow Leopard. Here is our configuration:

    Kerio Mail Server running on OS X 10.5.8
    Mac Mail Version 4.2 (1077)

    Mail is configured to check the server via the Exchange connector. The duplicate email problem occurs periodically under multiple conditions:
    -- user unplugs ethernet connection, moves to a conference room, connects to wireless and email starts duplicating.
    -- user takes laptop home, connects to vpn, duplicate email happens. Brings it back to office, plugs in and after a period of time, the duplicate messages go away.
    -- user has been logged in all morning on a Macpro, goes to a meeting, comes back wakes up computer and for a period of time some email messages duplicate (but not all of them do), clears up after a few minutes.

    Each time, user checks via webmail to see if they are duplicated there, and they are not so it is not server side.

    Hope this helps Apple with more information. If nothing else, just more evidence this problem is very wide spread and needs to be addresses as soon as possible.

    Thanks - Brian

    Hi ernie,
    tried this but it did not solve my problem which I'm not sure if its downloading multiple copies or sending multiple copies.

    the little turning circle keeps turning and it all started after I sent out an email to about 150 people at the same time. Am running tiger.

  • rerecich Level 1 Level 1 it works. I have three email POP accounts. I had to delete the MessageUids AlreadyDownloaded2 from all three accounts in the Library/Mail account as there was one for each. I couldn't just fix the one account for whatever reason, that alone did not do the job. Thanks for the help Ernie.
  • rerecich Level 1 Level 1
    I think this is an odd bug. I'm running Tiger and MacMail 2.1.3(753.1). I have done nothing to upgrade any of that.

    You'll see my threads...first it was downloading everything off the server. So I did Ernies fix of deleting the MessageUid....file. That seemed to stop the downloading.

    Then I deleted all the files off the server.

    Problem #2: I delete the duplicates from my inbox, then I empty the trash so they should be gone. When I go back into my inbox, they are all still there. Doesn't matter if I close Mail or not. They still return even though they should be long gone.

    " Locate the file named MessageUidsAlreadyDownloaded3, quitting Mail and removing this file, and then relaunching Mail will result in a freshening of the file " - this solution worked perfectly for me!!
