Have you verified in your mail logs that your server actually sent the 
subscriber that many copies?

In my experience, duplicated emails are almost always the result of 
misconfigured sorting rules in the Outlook mail client.  Outlook will 
copy an email to multiple places if you have multiple rules matches, 
which is not the behaviour you see with most other clients.

On the other hand, 70 messages seems like a lot for a rules fubar.
