You'll find at the bottom of this mail the status of the header information as passed to GBarr's Mail​::Send
module, directly before it's being used. All mails passing through my hands will have this treatment for the
next short period while I try to work this out.

# Quote
my $debug = qq|\n---\nPlease ignore this for a day or two​:\nDebugging perlbug
mail ($msg) headers​: |.Dumper($msg)."\n---\n";
  #
  my $mail = $msg->open("sendmail") or ($self->debug("Couldn't open mailer​: $!
", 0));
  if (defined($mail)) {
  print $mail $body.$debug; # temp!
  $mail->close;
# /Quote

If anyone has any bright ideas why this should produce 2 near identical messages, please let me know.

Thanks - despairingly...

It's beyond me why a mail with a single message id, sent to a single
address, will duplicate itself on arrival, or somewhere between.
<snip>
So we see that the message gets passed through qmail three times, and
it is the second one (with uid 511) which is doing the duplicating.
Possibly you can identify the qmail instances by knowing who the
respective users (508, 511) are.
Well, 511 is me, and 508 is perlmail, whatever that is...

Good luck in your search.
Thanks.

P.S. Which is your preferred mail address? I've seen at least three
different ones on your mail. Does it matter which I use?
Nearly no difference whatsoever, as they all come to me (eventually),
although FYI it may be worth noting the following​:
work​: Richard.Foley@​m.dasa.de (only goes to work)
perl​: richard@​perl.org (picked up everywhere)
home​: *@​rfi.net (picked up everywhere)

Ciao

Or maybe it's not that easy? :-)

Yup, but that is not always the case, or it would be.

BTW, if that would produce the same message-id for p5p, surely p5p will
trash it, no?
