mail replication postfix + procmail + fetchmail
There is a problem with my mailserver(postfix+procmail+fetchmail +redhat 9.0).If a mail is sent to multiple recipients (ie:To,Cc,Bc) ,all the recipients will get multiple copies of same mail.The number of multiple copies is proportional to the number of addressee.There is no problem if there is only one recipient ,ie:(only To).
I checked all the configuration files (ie .procmailrc,.fetchmailrc ),but all seems to be fine.The same configuration was working fine till the other day.What may have gone wrong?
Please help me to find a solution.

Check to make sure that fetchmail is deleting the mail from the server from where it is getting the mail. Have you been testing fetchmail at all, trying out different cmmand line switches and the like?

I checked abt what U said.Fetch mail is deleting mail from the server.

OK. What does your .procmailrc file look like?

Hello Charles,
I found out a solution to my problem.It was related to size of duplicates file.It got flooded with duplicate mails.So the mails were flushed to user's directory.I deleted the duplicate file and created a new one.Now every thing is working fine.

Cheers ,
