    Welcome to Android Forums, Liquidnadz and Chewy11. :)

    Those issues with the emails are often caused by a sync loop, or a misconfigured app.

    Sometimes the emails will get stuck in the Outbox on your phone's email account (that issue is seen in gmail quite often).

    One way to remedy the repeated reloading is to go into your hotmail account on your computer and turn off syncing then go into the email apps you're using on your device, hotmail in this case, and, following a backup of your contacts, remove then re-install it, then restore syncing.

    Be sure to reboot your phone after doing those things.

    It's a bit of a hassle, but worth it.

    Please post back your results. ;)

    I can only think of two things to try beyond what Frisco suggested, and they're basically just guesses.

    1) Look for a setting on your device along the lines of 'leave messages on server' and set it so that the messages do NOT remain on the server. That way when they are pulled to the device that's the only place they exist. Naturally if this is a problem for you, don't do it. :)

    2) After deleting the messages, empty your trash folder and make those messages really be gone.

    Hi Frisco and mhotovec, i think i finally have figured it out with your helps (thanks btw =) ), i followed mhotovec's advise and found the settings on the server said to never delete and kept syncing....course it's only been 5 minutes but i hope it works =)

    Droid X repeats emails from AOL ( not from gmail or exchange server - Just AOL ) ..... when either marked read.. they show up highlighted as not read.. when deleted the same email remains.. and shows up as not read.

    What to do.
