Did you look closely at the Received: history of the messages?

We occasionally get incidents where someone's broken mail software
regurgitates delayed copies of list mail, either back to the list
daemon (which is usually successful at recognizing duplicates, but
not always) or directly to people named in the From: or To: or CC:
lines of the mail.  To no one's surprise, the mail software that
does this is invariably Microsoft's.

Regurgitating list mail is grounds for ejection from the lists,
if we can figure out who's doing it (it will probably not surprise you
to learn that M$' broken software often makes it hard to figure out
which list subscriber is responsible).

If you get multiple duplicates, and their headers show that they
went through some unexpected places between and you,
send 'em to the list owner (eg, pgsql-general-owner at
for possible action.
