Ahh, thank you,
The messages are sent TO the list and CCd to an internal (Groupwise)
distribution list. The internal list contained a subset of those on the
list as well as a few others. So I guess the GW MTA should notice that
and only give us two copies ... anyway, not to worry, if it is only the
people on the internal list getting the dupes it isn't a big deal.
