FAQ
Hi,

Why do some subscribers receive 2 emails from the mailing list? 1 email from listname at ourdomain, and a duplicate message from listname-bounces at ourdomain ?

Thanks!

    I am guessing you have General Options -> anonymous_list set to Yes -
    otherwise at least one of these would be from the poster's address
    instead of listname at ourdomain.

    There are actually two parts to your question. The listname-bounces
    address is set as the envelope sender of the message and also in the
    Sender: header for automated bounce processing. See the FAQ at
    <http://wiki.list.org/x/RoA9> for more on this.

    The duplication is almost certainly caused by filtering/filing rules in
    the MUAs (mail clients) of the recipients of the duplicate messages.
