    Hey Guys,

    I was curious if anyone else noticed this or has seen this...

    Sometimes when I send an email (lets say to a friend), when I look at "Mail activity", it says sending 2 of 2 emails.

    It doesn't happen all the time, and it doesn't happen to only certain emails (sometimes an email to a friend will do it, but another email to the same friend wont).

    Any idea what's going in?

    I noticed it doesn't show up as 2 sent emails in my sent folder.

    I'm running the newest version of Leopard, macbook pro 17" santa rosa.


    Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue. Sending 2 of 2 but only one in the sent folder. I would swear I have even see the progress bar twice.

    Similar issue here.

    Every email I receive is received double.
    If I delete one then both delete.
    If I move one to a folder - only one appears in folder.:confused:

    If I had to guess I would say you are using gmail?

    No not gmail. I use Mac Mail.

    Have had the problem for a couple of weeks but hopefully it is fixed now.

    Deleted the com.apple.mail.plist from User>Library>Preferences.
    Closed and then re opened mail and let it make a new .plist.

    Seems fine now.:)

    Might be the email itself being uploaded to the web server as well as being sent to your friend.

    I am using Gmail and experience the same: double emails.
    It sounds you know it as a known problem, is there a known solution too?
