Customer Question

I sent an email via Outlook recently to a closed group of recipients (about 8 people) and it keeps resending the same email over and over again several times a day to all the recipients which is driving them and me nuts. Do you have a solution?

I'm sorry about the issue. What email do you use, such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc.?
Do you have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac computer?

Hello when you send to multiple people then the sending session to the server is 8 times longer as in your case.

I would firstly try to make sure your anti-virus isn't causing this. For instance Nortons checks all outgoing emails via a third party server which delays the mail being sent to your email server.

Secondly if the server time-out in your Outlook mail set up is too short a time this can cause problems. In this case try changing the time-out to say 2 minutes.
