I am using Windows Live Mail and configured Gmail. But I am receiving 2 copies of every mail. How can I remove that? In the web view of Gmail I am just receiving one email, while Live Mail is showing several copies of the same mail.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Since you have not explained how you have configured GMail and Windows Live Mail, I'll list the steps to set this up below.
If you confirm whether this matches what you've done, this might enable others to help?
Access a Gmail Account in Windows Live Mail Using IMAP
Within Windows Live multiple folders are created for Gmail by default. One will be inbox another will be the Gmail accounts folders themselves (All Mail, Drafts, Sent etc).
When you download the Gmail email to Windows Live, it will be present in both the Windows Live Inbox folder for the account and the Gmail All Mails folder.
If you are using an unread e-mail folder to view incomming e-mails, the Gmail message will be present twice in that folder once it is downloaded.
To fix this issue just right click the Inbox, select Synchronization Settings from the context menu and then click Don't synchronize. Mails will still be created in the Gmail/All Mails folder, but won't be duplicated in the Inbox folder.
