Depending on the mail viewer being used, you may not be fully deleting read 
mail.  ie: in SCO Mail, putting mail in the "trash" only marks it for 
deletion.  At some 
point you must "empty the trash".  If the machine is rebooted before 
permentaly discarding the old messages, they will all reappear.  I could 
imagine a simular problem at your ISP.

This is only one posibility,  Happy Hunting.
