	What do your logs say?  Are you delivering duplicate copies of 
messages to her?

	Have you gotten her to send you complete samples of the 
duplicates, including all headers intact?  Comparing the headers is a 
good way to figure out where the duplication is occurring -- there 
might be a flaw in your mail server causing these problems (unlikely, 
as you'd probably have other users also complaining), or a flaw in 
her mail server.  Or maybe a flaw somewhere between.

	It could also be something as simple as people sending a copy of 
a reply to a message to the list, as well as a copy directly to her. 
So far as Mailman could tell, it hasn't sent her a copy of that 
message, so it would send her another one.
