Not me.

How about some more information?

How are you seeing your FM emails - via FM's browser interface, or an app on a smartphone (in which case, what app?), or using a standalone client (eg Thunderbird)?

Can you tell if these mails are newly-arriving (as if someone somewhere else has somehow resent a bunch of old mails again), or are they the existing copies of old mails somehow being shown to you again?

You should be able to tell by looking at the headers in the mails. If they really are new copies arriving then lots of the "Received:" headers will show today or yesterdays' dates, as the mails have progressed through a bunch of servers on their way to you.

If they're old mails that you already had, those same headers will show old dates showing the mails' progress on the way to you.

They were emails I had already had, but they were sent again with a different received date.....its no big deal but caused a little confusion at the time as I thought we were going to receive a flee Bay order all over again.

I was just curious to see if anyone else has had this problem.

If I still have the emails I will look at the headers.

Were ALL the extra emails from eBay?

Did you not notice that at the start? Why would you suspect FM of a problem when it was just mails from one site that were being duplicated?

It's not the 'Snooze" function is it?

No dont use it as you cant pin end date, every time I clear my cookies the end date is removed.

I have not had any more old emails.

Problem yesterday was my default sending ID was sending my login user name....anyway I deleted my user name in the identities and it went back to my set ID but have now given out my login ID...

Depending on the method used, I've seen a service provider doing an email migration have this effect. I've also seen overloaded mail servers duplicate deliveries if the service isn't sure if delivery completed successfully. The full headers should help to tell the story.
