My Outlook Express is sending 9-20 copies of each email I send to the recipient. Any idea as to the cause and how to fix it? Thanks.

Things to try:
1. Delete the Sent Items.dbx file.
2. Another Windows account.
3. Another email program. Microsoft promotes Windows Live Mail as its successor (the successor of its successor in fact). Many use Thunderbird. Both are free downloads.

I've heard that certain viruses will do this. Do you have virus protection?
