Well, my own message was doubled, but not your reply.

When I look at the message sources, they definitely are different.  The
one looks to me like an ordinary email. The other is much longer, but I
don't claim to know what all the fields mean.

One pair of fields that looks interesting is:

...    X-Original-To: python-list at python.org
...    Delivered-To: python-list at mail.python.org

I sent to  python-list at python.org, and when I do a reply-all that's what
gets filled in.  But what about the other address?


The pervasive doubling just started in the last day or two;  I saw 50
new messages overnight, between about 10pm and 4am, EDT.   I haven't
changed any settings on purpose, and the only new software is whatever
the Linux update manager changes.
