Unhappy Kmail duplicates messages

Hi all,

I'm not only new to LinuxQuestions, but a novice on Linux. If I've posted this in the wrong forum, please accept my apologies.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 on a new 64-bit Linux system. Have KMail set up and loving that program except for one problem--it downloads duplicate emails.

I have 5 email accounts running, 3 POP3 accounts and 2 IMAP (GMail) accounts, and the problem seems to cross over to all of the accounts, although I don't get duplicates on every single email received. The second email is downloaded immediately upon opening the first email and I get a conflict message asking me to choose which message I want to keep, the left, right, or both. I have interval email checking in place and the POP3 accounts are set to not leave fetched messages on the server.

Have searched the site and read the questions/answers on the duplicate email problem with IMAP accounts and my problem is not that at all. I don't get batches of emails downloaded a second time, etc. Any ideas would be appreciated!

A suggestion: Set up another email client (I would recommend Sylpheed--it's light and fast) and test to see whether the problem appears in it also. If it doesn't, that would narrow this to a Kmail problem.

Either way, it would help define the scope of this issue.
