Thanks for responding on a long weekend Tony, and especially for the 
details to help me analyse the errors myself. I will watch for messages 
specifically from sessions where the duplicates are left in the INBOX.

I guess the 1.1 sb_imapfilter is part of the "CVS" version? (I've no idea 
what that means, but will make the time to research it out.)

never need to be duplicated at all.
