Repeat E-mails

I rec'd an e-mail from a friend with some pictures attached. I opened the e-mail and downloaded the pictures. Now, for 3 solid days I have been receiving the exact same e-mail about 30 - 40 times a day. The date actually changes each day, but the e-mail is the same. How can I stop it? The extension from the e-mail is NCTV.COM. My friend has no idea what is going on. Can you help me stop this e-mail? Thank you

Re: Repeat E-mails

I'm not sure what this has to do with HP-UX, but.....

What I suspect is happening is that the e-mail never really finishes downloading to your mailbox and as such does not get deleted from whatever e-mail server you use. Since it never finishes, your e-mail client keeps trying to re-download it and it keeps failing.

If you have access to some sort of web-based client for your e-mail, use it to log into your account and delete that message.

If you don't have access, call your ISP and get them to delete the message for you.
