I recently had to reinstall WinXP on a new HDD on my laptop. I had backed up my outlook.pst and archive files. I've reinstalled MS outlook. I then copied the backed up outlook.pst and archive files to the new Outlook folder. Hwoever, when I do a fresh Send/Receive it downloads all my 'old" email from the server, thus creating duplicate emails in my inbox folder. How can you tell MS Outlook not to download already downloaded emails? Can you tell it to download emails only after a certain date? How? Please Help!
