I've never got a duplicate message from this list. Are you using
fetchmail or have anything custom in a .qmail file that might be
spawning two deliveries?

Seems very odd to me, a lot of people use email fro automated systems
so a bug like that in production might cause a lot of havoc.

However, looking at the headers of this email, you might get it three
or four times. Let me know how many, if it's four times then I guess
something else is to blame, if it's just three then it's the list
that's duplicating.

The PRI to the Xbox is chompin like hungry, hungry hippo's because of a
faulty regex. R2D2 is horking out last night's beer.
