The inner CV axle journal that rides on the inside surface of the seal may be rough, nicked or grooved. This can rapidly wear out a replacement seal. It should be a smooth surface finish for the seal.
Give it a visual inspection for grooving and if your fingernail catches on it, the groove is to deep. A reman right axle may be the answer.

You will have some play in an unloaded axle where it enters the transaxle. It's normal. If the differential sidegears and/or shaft splines have excessively worn, it may cause a seal leak. The seal should be able to conform to some shaft play. Are these OEM parts? I have fitted a seal onto the axle joint before installation just to test and make sure that it was a firm fit.
You might want an experienced mechanic's opinion on this leak. At 240K miles(?), this may be a differential tapered roller bearing wear issue.
