This is still happening, and it's much worse the past month than ever.

Hey, Verizon and AOL - do you want to help us work from home, or do you just not care?

(And I've been a Verizon - NYNEX - NY Telephone - Bell Telephone customer all my life.)

I have the same issues and was looking to see where the reply is.  I need to get this fixed and it is driving me crazy!  It happens randomly and even after I delete my emails from AOL, they still show up in Outlook.

Still happening - all the time.  Only verizon.net email on aol, not any other email account.

It also happens with Verizon emails from Yahoo's mail server.

Richard57 - What's your setup?  What email app on what computer?  What's your internet connection and speed?

Some changes I made as outlined < HERE ON THIS FORUM > do NOT help with this duplicate download problem.

The problem continues.  AOL remains the worst email provider anywhere, and its parent Verizon does nothing.

I'm seeing the same problem on my 2013 Mac Pro using Mac Mail.  Every so often, about a month's worth of old emails are downloaded to my inbox.   I've been seeing this for about a year.  I have my email set up as a POP account on the Mac.

 

I'm relieved to see that this is not a Mac-specific problem, but really angry to see that it's been around so long.

 

I'm almost to the point of cancelling my FIOS account and moving to another service just to eliminate this problem.  To make matters worse, AOL will not talk to me unless I pay an additional fee on top of my FIOS charge.  When I installed FIOS 10 years ago, email was part of the package.
