first thing you need to do is find out where the duplicates are coming 
from. that means going into the logs to find them.

Don't assume mailman's doing it, either. It could also be the MTA 
(sendmail, whatever).

Is this happening to all users? or just users at one site? Because if 
it's the latter, it could be THAT site that's looping, and not your 
fault at all.

you won't know until you go into your logs and find out where the loop 
starts. And we can't do that for you...

There are many possible sources to loops. Until you find it, we can't 
answer your questiosn.

Yes, yes, I've finally finished my home page. Lucky you.
