Default Old E-mails keep coming through

Please Login to Remove!

My 8900 blackberry is registered to my hotmail account and i keep getting old e-mails through from as long ago as last year?

I woke up with 47 e-mails this morning, all that i have read previously?

Any help?

RIM support site shows some issues with old email being interpreted as new by various email services but most are due to an old email file such as an OUTLOOK .pst file being loaded. When you started to receive these old email had you done anything you can recall that may have triggered the reception of the old emails. I would look at the Hotmail account to see if you have a changed option or possibly the old emails were marked as unread. Go into the account and read each one and see what happens.
I reset some of mine to unread and I received them again.
Good Luck
