    Duplicate emails

    If you wish to keep using Windows Live Mail, here's a guide. Though I know it is dated (needs updates, patches, etc), I would recommend trying Thunderbird again or looking into another email client. If you're on Windows 10 there is the built in Mail client. Thunderbird will also auto configure settings for Gmail for you, along with other services.

    Duplicate emails

    I've not considered a Gmail account recently, although I actually have a Gmail address. Didn't particularly like it several years ago. May have changed since then, so might look into it later. But frankly everything I've tried over the last 5 years pales when compared to the flexibility and control one gets with Windows Live Mail.

    It sounds like it does. Not really a surprise when it comes to Comcast. Have you considered a Gmail account? Even if it's to test and see if it works in a similar nature with your email client?

    Glad it works for you. It works entirely different, and unacceptably, for me. Might have something to do with Comcast's email server.

    Duplicate emails

    This point of reference, which means that this is not normal IMAP behaviour. Those emails should be deleted/moved to trash and auto deleted within a set period of time. It is correct that with IMAP emails you receive are also stored on the email server. When you delete an email it gets deleted from both the client and server (moved to Trash and deleted within x days). Even per the Wikipedia article about IMAP https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Message_Access_Protocol If I do a test email via Outlook 2016, then delete it in Outlook, the message is moved to the Trash bin in Outlook and on the server, which later is automatically deleted. I've not had any IMAP issues with Outlook 2016 or Thunderbird. This includes IMAP for Lunarsoft, Gmail, and Hotmail accounts.

    Duplicate emails

    It's not "they" who have IMAP working that way. . . it's the way IMAP works by default. Here's a copy of how IMAP works from a website I found: The main advantage of IMAP over POP3 is the ability to keep the original e-mail stored on the mail server and the ability to access the same account from multiple locations. Unlike POP3 where e-mail is downloaded to the computer or device checking for mail and completely removed from the mail server, IMAP simply downloads a copy of the e-mail. This statement hides one aspect if IMAP and is COMPLETELY wrong about POP3. The fact that IMAP accounts allow access to ALL the emails on the server becomes a problem if your ISP does not provide a convenient way to quickly select and delete blocks of emails. Comcast's webmail is one that provides no way to do that, and also provides no option to delete emails older than X days. If you don't make any deletions there, you CANNOT delete them from your email client. If you do and are using an IMAP account, they will simply re-download. Contrary to what this article says, emails downloaded to my email client are not. . .NOT. . . removed from the mail server. The only way they get removed from the server is if I delete them from Windows Live Mail AND utilized the option in WLM to delete emails on the server when deleted from the WLM. If you don't use that option, ALL THE EMAILS DOWNLOADED TO THE EMAIL CLIENT REMAIN ON THE SERVER. I often see jokes on TV re "I saw it on the Internet, so it must be true." This is a perfect example of why what you read in the web ain't necessarily so.

    That's very odd that they have IMAP work in such a way. Sorry you had those issues. Perhaps it's time for a Gmail account?

    Duplicate emails

    Although I wasn't sure what would happen to my emails if I went to IMAP, I set up an IMAP account anyhow. It immediately downloaded all the emails on the Comcast server. . . which was NOT nice! A major reason I don't use Comcast's web mail (i.e., doing email directly from their server) is that they provide no way to delete large blocks of emails. You have to check the checkbox on each email you want to delete (or check the "check-all" checkbox and UNdelete all the ones you want to keep). With an email client, you can mark a block of emails the same way you mark blocks of text in Windows: Shift/click, then hit the Delete key. Anyway, to my horror, the IMAP account downloaded ALL the emails in my account on Comcast's server. . . which went back to 2014! I tried to delete all but the last 3 months (which has been my habit for the last 25 years), and to my shagrin, the IMAP account DOWNLOADED THEM AGAIN. A search of Comcast's instructions on IMAP account clearly says that EMAILS DELETED FROM YOUR EMAIL CLIENT WILL NOT BE DELETED FROM THE SERVER and there is no setting to counter this property. This is TOTALLY different than POP3 which provides a setting that deletes emails on the server whenI deleted in the client. So. . . I removed the IMAP account, reinstalled my old POP3 account, and deleted all but the last 3 months of emails. As for T-Bird. I tried that off and on for a year. Never liked it, so finally uninstalled it about 5 months ago. Except for the occasional double email downloads, I'm really very happy with WLM.

But on Thursday, the company got more specific: the upcoming processors will land on store shelves at the end of 2019, during the holiday season. The first 10nm chips to launch will be for consumer PCs, with server-based chips to shortly follow, Intel executives said during an earnings call. Why the continued delays?...

    Duplicate emails

    As I mentioned in my previous post, IMAP is the preferred protocol. I've used it for years and I prefer it too. With POP, you download emails with a new/unread header, which can lead to duplicates. With IMAP, it synchronizes with the server. Say Gmail for example. If I delete an email in Outlook, it will also delete it from the Gmail server. This is me being overly cautious with data: While I have never used Comcast's email services extensively as I prefer Gmail, I would recommend that you back up all of your emails that you downloaded via POP. The reason for this is that in case Comcast only kept emails on their servers for a limited time in the past, you wouldn't want to lose those emails. However, if that is not a concern, then I would delete all the emails in the client for a clean slate, followed by letting them all redownload via IMAP. This will help to get rid of duplicates and any other potential issues. Additionally, I'd recommend using Thunderbird as Windows Live Mail is very dated. There is a Mail program built into Windows 10 that you can use, or use Thunderbird there too.

    Is Auslogics Disk Defrag a fraud?

    Unfortunately it's hard to say for sure what it's deleting and where, unless it produces log files. If you like, just use the Windows 7 built in defrag. 🙂

    Not only does Comcast offer IMAP, they encourage you to use it vs. POP. They even give you step-by-step instructions for setting up an IMAP account for Windows Live Mail 2011 (I have WLM 2012, but assume there's little difference between 2011 and 2012). What they DON'T say is what impact this will have on the emails already downloaded or those on their server. I note that the incoming and outgoing ports are different than for POP, so will CHANGING AN EXISTING ACCOUNT FROM POP TO IMAP WIPE OUT EVERYTHING, or will it have no affect on emails/access to emails already received?

    Running Win 7 on my desktop, and that's the computer I use it on. Have a Win 10 laptop/don't use it there.

    POP3. I'm not tech savvy when it comes to email protocols, but I don't remember Comcast mail offering IMAP. I'll do some checking and comment back.

    Are you using POP or IMAP with Comcast? IMAP is the preferred mail protocol to use.

    Is Auslogics Disk Defrag a fraud?

    Which OS are you running this on? There are so many things that run and generate files in the background, it's hard to narrow down. I will say that I've stopped using third party defrag utilities and am just using the built in WIndows defrag. Since Windows 7 it's been sufficient. Windows 10 it's great, it handles SSDs wonderfully.

    Duplicate emails

    The email client on my laptop is Windows Live 2012. My ISP is Comcast. Quite often, emails download from the Comcast server TWICE. I.e., I get a long litany of duplicate emails. Why?

    Is Auslogics Disk Defrag a fraud?

    I've used Auslogics Disk Defrag (ADD) for several years. I was initially attracted to it because of its speed vs. Windows Pass 1, Pass 2, Pass 3, . . . ad infinitum. . . takes forever. However, ADD's behavior concerns me/makes me think it might be at least partially a scam. Here are the reasons I think it might be: First run: ADD finds and deletes (example) 13,000 temp files and finds 300 fragmented files, which it defrags. IMMEDIATELY after that run, I run it again. It finds and deletes 400 temp files and defrags 37 fragmented files. Mind you, this is after I HAVE DONE NOTHING ON THE COMPUTER following the ADD run!!! I can repeat this multiple times, and it always finds a few temp files and some fragmented files. If I select "Defrag & Optimize", same scenario. Go back IMMEDIATELY AFTER RUNNING IT and it finds fragmented and non-optimized files. If I then use the computer to visit a few websites and look at my emails, then run ADD, it again finds 12,000+ temp files and a huge number of fragmented files. Doesn't make sense. Can anyone explain this?

    Manifest and other files

    I'd allow Windows 10's built in defrag to handle it. SoftwareDistribution is where your Windows Updates are downloaded to. Best tips I can give you right now, off the top of my head... Start > Type "Disk Cleanup" > Right click and Run as Administrator > then clean up everything found there. You can remove the old Windows install/upgrades (including the bi-annual updates/Spring/Fall/April) Set it and forget it. Let Windows built in defrag do it's thing. It works wonders, even on a SSD. Don't run CCleaner. In fact, uninstall it. It does more harm than good. If none of those help, honestly I'd reinstall. I opted in to the upgrade, then formatted and reinstalled after I did the upgrade. The clean install worked very well. Though this was years ago. Also, I'm running on an SSD which makes a lot of it super fast.
