The second time it is sent out the formatting is gone, the background is gone, and the name on the email is usually the "real" name, vs. the display name that usually shows.  On top of that there are attachments that were not on the first email.  If there was stationary the .gif that was the stationary is there.  Here is an example of the other names of files that are attached:

Some if not all of these names are made up by the MUA that is
displaying the mail. These attachments may or may not be shown in the
mail view as well.

>If anyone can tell me what I need to do to keep the second email going out to users I would really appreciate it.  Another FYI, not all user receive these duplicate emails, but it seems like the majority do.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

What we need to see to diagnose this further is copies of the raw
messages, i.e. the actual message source with all headers and mime
structure intact. Ideally we would like to see three messages, the
message as sent to the list and both copies as received from the list,
although just the latter two would help.
