[access-uk] Re: for Carol re duplicates

Hi Carol
Late in on this one but here are my thoughts.
Back over Easter NTL and many other ISP's upgraded the capacity of their
mail servers. Why they should have done this simultaneously I have no idea,
but the point is that during this time I was receiving numerous copies of
list mails and even some individual mails from friends etc.
You can get quite paranoid about duplicates and spend hours fruitlessly
trying to find a cause on your PC.
It's my experience that the fault lies with the Mail Servers and not with
you. Frequently they are not aware of the problem and it is resolved during
their routine maintenance. It's just a matter of patience.
Each ISP has a number of servers spread round the country and if you know
enough about these things it is possible to change the server you are logged
to. Perhaps someone else on the list knows how to do this. I've been walked
through it with NTL tech support before but couldn't tell you how with any
confidence.
