Thanks for the help Jeremy, They're vpopmail aliases, if that makes any difference? How would one eliminate the duplicate messages with procmail or maildrop? Is there a "best" way? -Andrew.

This will cause the qmail-tap patch (or stock qmail with the QUEUE_EXTRA modification) to again process the extra recipient. There is no way around this, however, there are methods of eliminating duplicate messages at delivery time (procmail, maildrop) -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ Systems Administrator ++ Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc.
