    Duplicate Messages from gmail

    Windows Live Mail is a bug-ridden mess.

    Every time it downloads messages from gmail accounts, they are always
    duplicated in pairs.

    Yeah, I eventually took Gmail out of Windows Live Mail and have it forwarded
    to one of my other email accounts. You may also notice that the yellow New
    Mail Icon will remain on the WLM taskbar icon even though you have no new
    Gmail.

    POP or IMAP protocol?
    I use POP with Gmail, and it works perfectly for me.

    Ditto...Same here, no issues with Gmail as a pop3 in XP/Vista/Win7 using WLM or any version of Outlook.

    If your car engine seized up because you never put any oil in it
    because you couldn't find the oil filler cap, would you blame the
    car? Many people use IMAP with Gmail with no problems at all.
    Gmail's way of storing messages is unique, and different from every
    other IMAP server's way of doing it. The WLMail developers have
    worked hard to make it possible to use the IMAP protocol with Gmail,
    so I can only assume that your settings need adjusting. Here are
    some things to check:

    1. At [Tools >] Accounts > (Gmail account) > Properties > IMAP, is
    the root folder entered as [Gmail]?
    2. Is 'Check for new messages in all folders' selected? Try
    deselecting it.
    3. Is 'Store special folders on IMAP server' selected (so you can
    see, for example, messages sent from WLMail when you access Gmail
    via the web)? If so, do the boxes contain the same labels as you see
    in Gmail on the web?
    4. You can see all the labels used on the server on the IMAP
    folders tab. You can also choose which ones to show. Do these fit
    with your requirements

    That should get you a bit closer to making this work - like your
    engine would have done if you'd put some oil in it.

    RE: Duplicate Messages from gmail

    So the consensus is I should be using POP except for the suggestion to use
    IMAP.

    Does anyone have a link to a web page to walk me thru the correct POP
    settings? (Either at Microsoft or Google.)

    Following the suggestion of:
    [Tools >] Accounts > (Gmail account) > Properties > IMAP

    Root folder path: (it's blank)

    Check for new messages in all folders (not checked)

    Store special folders on IMAP server (not checked)

    Sometimes when I watch the Send/Receive window, I can see long pauses at
    each folder as it is likely downloading them again and again despite no new
    items.

    Like my car when I bought it, it just worked. I have to change the oil every
    5k, but that is normal.

    Yeah, Gmail takes forever to check mail or whatever it does. Another reason
    I took it out. Of course its no big deal to me because it is not my primary
    account....Good luck!

    Previously this was configured as per Microsoft's guidance. However, as you
    know, Microsoft is constantly doing "updates" behind the scenes, so at some
    point this all stopped working correctly.

    To continue with Noel's analogy, as snarky as it is, this would be the
    equivalent of taking your car in to have the taillight fixed. Unbeknownst to
    you Mirosoft changed the oil with a new type, and tuned the engine to only
    use premium gas. Of course you don't find about about this until weeks later
    and are confound as to whey something previously working is now a mess.

    Gmail POP setup:

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the speed compared to IMAP.
