This is far from the only way to do this, incidentally. Doubling of messages can be easily set up in a mailserver (either sendmail or postfix or other), in somebody's procmail recipes, and several other different ways.

They could even mail-bomb, in that they could send an endless number of messages your way, should someone desire to do so.

But without the headers of the actual message duplicates that you are getting it is impossible to tell. What you need to be able to determine how and why the dupes are occurring is look in the full headers, specifically in the Return-path and Received: headers. If you've never traced e-mail headers before, there are a number of folks here who can if you'd like to send the full headers (headers only) in a message; you can start by sending it to me privately (not via the list) and then perhaps to the list, depending upon where the issue might lie (it could, for whatever reason, be related to the Fedora infrastructure issues/upgrades that have been happening lately, but it might not, too).

But without seeing the headers and tracing the Received: trail you haven't proved the someone IS doing this just because you found one of the many ways that this CAN be done. The possibility does not make the certainty.
Hi, I will look for a way to show full headers on Thunderbird. I will forward two identical messages to your address. Perhaps this will solve this mess.


Press CTRL-U to see all headers in tbird.
