Mac Mail as Big Brother?

    Is Big Brother watching me?

    Many times, when I'm sending one email from my Mail program, I will witness what appears to be multiple emails being sent by watching the words beneath the progress bar. It will say "Sending 1 of 2 emails" then go to "Sending 2 of 2". Today it actually went through "Sending 1 of 4, Sending 2 of 4 etc." when I was only mailing out one email. When this happens, I never find duplicate or multiple new sent emails in my sent folder.

    I should also say that there are times when it just says "Sending" or something simple like that, with no numbers or anything--everything seems fine. That's most of the time. The anomaly I report above happens only occasionally.

    Is this just a Mail glitch or is my program sending my emails off to a third party? Has anyone else experienced this? Can anyone offer an explanation? I've found no viruses or spyware using Norton Antivirus for Mac.

    Someone please help me put my mind at ease.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    could be sending messages off to the server, syncing with the server...something along those lines..

    You aren't getting hacked..don't worry about it.
