[Mailman-Users] Message discarded without reason logged in vette

User was reusing an old message that was previously sent to the list, and then using Outlook's 'Send Again' feature, which caused the message to contain headers that mailman placed into the original message.  When the IncomingRunner process saw the message come through 'again', it discarded the message.

Thanks to Mark Sapiro (mark_at_msapiro.net) for catching that those headers were there when they shouldn't have been!

Do you have an example message? If not, have her Cc: you on the next
post. I might be able to see something in the headers of the message.

Also, you could patch IncomingRunner as indicated at
(and restart Mailman) to get the handler name.
