    Outlook keeps downloading all my e-mail


    I have been using MsOutlook 2008 for Mac on my MacbookPro since the beginning of this year. Everything worked perfectly and I have multiple e-mail addresses connected with Outlook: hotmail, gmail and an exchange for school.
    But since last friday, my outlook started to download all my old e-mails, from like 2 years ago, without me adjusting any settings. Now that should not be a big problem to load all the e-mails, but when it is finished (with ~8000 e-mails). It just restarts downloading these 8000 again.

    What can I do to fix this?

    I use OSX 10.9

    With kind regards.

    Make sure it's configured as IMAP not the old POP3 protocol

    Check the settings, and use IMAP as said above. Also if you don't mind may I ask why you use outlook? I honestly hate the software and it seems to give many IT people headaches due to issues it's had over the years. I find Thunderbird better to use imo.
