I am having a huge problem with Windows Live Mail and IMAP.

I create the IMAP account and it pulls all the mail down correctly and synchronises with the server.

But then the next day it creates 4 account with the same details and tries to download mail to all the accounts.

What I have noticed is that mail is stored in the Recovered Items folder under Storage Folders.

I have gone to Users > username > AppData > Local > Microsoft > Windows Live Mail.

I see numerous folders here. Each has an inbox, sent and deleted items, with the messages duplicated in each folder

All I can sum up is that each time it creates a recovery folder on the storage folder, it is pulling the mail and storing it on the machine instead of retrieving and syncing up with the mail server.

I have to deleted all the email accounts and respective folders. Then setup the account again each morning.

I am not too sure why it is doing this. If anyone can help that would be great.

I have tried the link you posted.

If if Inbox as the root folder path, then it doesnt find any of my folders to download. But if I leave the Root Path box as empty then it finds all the folder s and downloads them.

But I run into the same problem where it tries to download all the mail again and creates the other accounts for some arb reason
