What causes duplicated messages?
One thing that I've found that RELIABLY duplicates messages is to have
your address on at least two of the To:, Cc, and/or Bcc: lines AND the
mail is processed via some flavor of MS mail handler. MS seems to
process each of these lines separately and keeps addees on each line
separate. MS doesn't seem to recognize that the To:, Cc: and Bcc:
lines are just for HUMAN convenence and has nothing to do with mail
What MS should do is to consolidate all three lines into one (w/o
changing the message itself), sorting the addresses uniquely, and then
initiating connections. At a minimum, the MS product will make one
connection for each of the To:, Cc: and Bcc: headers.
Your address needs to be on a least TWO of the headers to get the
message duplicated. If it is on all three of the headers, then you get
a message in triplicate.
