pop3 mail problems in Outlook
Everytime when I reset the compter or buy a new computer, I will import the backup data to my Outlook such as Calendar, Contacts and notes etc, but I have to enter the pop3 setting manually everytime, and it will reload all mails from my yahoo mail box (i.e. yahoo mail) even some mails already loaded and read previously and appear as duplicate in inbox of Outlook.
How to fix this problem.
Thanks a lot.

1. if you do not want your email in Yahoo mailbox reloaded again after refresh your computer, before doing that you should have to shorten the retention period of email at your POP3 server, by default, it looks like 5 days, you can set it to 0, then after POP your email from Yahoo to Outlook, your email at Yahoo will be removed immediately. This function can be found in mail account, On the Outlook Express Tools menu, click Accounts, Click the Mai tab, and then double-click your e-mail account. Click the Advanced tab.

If you are using Outlook 2003, see this site http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA011507... and expand POP3 e-mail accounts.
2. To export Outlook Express account, you can try step 3 of this site.
