1. If people are replying to your messages using "Reply to all", then
you will receive two copies of such replies (one to you directly and the
other via the list). That is normal.
2. If you are subscribed to both the vim list and the vim-dev list, then
you will receive two copies (one for each list) of every message on the
(low-traffic) vim-announce list. That is also normal.
3. In other cases, i.e., for messages not addressed to vim-announce@ and
whose "To:" and "Cc:" headers don't list you more than once (listing you
by name counts for once, and any list to which you are subscribed counts
for as many times as you have "subscriptions" to that list), then there
is something weird going on. If it keeps on going, then you should
collect evidence (such as full headers of emails, as shown by the "view
source" function of some "good" email clients) and get help from someone
I see you are apparently using Mozilla Mail. On the similar Thunderbird
client, there is a nice extension named "Remove Duplicate Messages"
which allows me to delete all copies but one of the messages in
categories 1 and 2 above. (More info at
.) Alas, it is not (yet?) compatible with the Mozilla Suite. You may
want to contact the extension's maintainer at rdm@...
