There has been an Outlook bug discovered and I wanted to pass along this information.

If you are running Outlook and have it set to perform auto updates, you may experience duplicate emails being downloaded to your computer.

We wanted to pass along a link from the Microsoft Tech Forum that should help you resolve this issue.  The issue appears to be related to a recent version of Outlook and the procedure listed on the forum reverts Outlook back to a previous version.

If you need to perform this fix, please have your IT person within your office assist you.  Do not do this if you are not familiar with the processes listed in this Microsoft Tech Article.
