Repeated downloads of the same messages are usually caused by
downloads not completing. When a POP3 download completes
successfully, the server is told to delete those messages from the
server. If the server is not given that command (because of a
stuck or incomplete download), nothing gets deleted from the server.
The way to fix this is to access the server via webmail, then delete
the oldest message you see there. It is probably corrupt.
