Outlook downloads duplicate emails:

We have found that there is a bug in the latest version of Outlook 2016 where it downloads multiple emails when using POP3. Another issue we have found is that Outlook may also delete these emails from the server permanently.

Check Outlook version:

The version that has this issue is version 16.0.6568.2025
To find out the version please do the following:
1. Click on File

3. Click on ‘About Outlook’ to view the version

Revert Outlook version:
