My old emails are reloading from the Yahoo POP3 server

Right now it is up to 490 of 1077.

I leave emails on the server on each computer so that the other computer can read them also. My email program does not have a feature to remove after both computers have read the email. Nor does it have a setting to remove emails from the server after 30 days.

A few months of emails are coming in as duplicates. I am dealing with it, because I know how to use my email programs. Everything is coming in from early December. I stopped email on my laptop, and I wrote a highest-priority email filter to put all emails into a temporary folder, and to not leave the emails on the server.

After this completes, i will delete that filter.

I had that happen several years ago, but this is the first time since. I wonder if this is just me, or if it is happening to many.

EDIT: It is years, not months.

I don't know. I use, 'imap.mail.yahoo.com:993', now. It has the advantage of syncing all of the folders.

Yeah... too bad my email program does not do Imap... I could switch, but my program has some advantages for me... it is more text-oriented (although it can view HTML in a limited way), so I feel I am safer than with a more HTML-oriented "modern" program.

UPDATE: I was bringing in emails from 2009. I went to web mail, and with the new version, I could delete thousands of emails quickly. So that worked well.
