Unhappy Duplicate mail with Cyrus+Postfix+Getmail...

Hi there I have a very annoying problem;

I configured a mail server with Cyrus as POP3/mailbox, Postfix to send mail and Getmail to fetch mail from internet mailboxes..

But each time there is a malformed or modified mail header on the internet mailbox, my users get same copies of this mail at each poll

Example I get spam with no date or a mailer-deamon notification and I'll get same copy again and again until I delete it manually from the Interner server.

That's very frustrating because I thought it was a Fetchmail problem, so I installed Getmail with exactly the same results

To make thing even worse, I was told NOT to delete the mails from the Internet mailboxes when I copy them to my fedora server, in order to be able to keep some backup (they're deleted after 24H...).

I need serious help before my users become completely mad at receiving 100+ copies of the same mail per day.

Thanks for your replies.
