Thanks very much for that info. Yes, it's not that I've received
irate messages from people who've received a message twice! More
that it "feels" untidy, but I suspect that you're right and that
any real problem is neatly solved by Mailman.

I'm actually using the List-Id header:

List-Id to appear in the headers anyway. If it happens
again, I'll look more closely at the headers. It hasn't
yet. Thanks for the hint, though.
