Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The reason for the strange multiple emails you get is easy to tell:
It is because if one is not using the CVSNT newsserver (which I can't do at work
due to silly firewall rules) and so is using the mail list then the only way to
respond to the list is to "Reply All" and *then remove* the original poster from the
address line.
Just using "Reply" only gets the address of the original poster into the To: field and
the list is all gone. This is a "feature" that to my knowledge the CVSNT list does not
share with any other list I have ever joined. On those list a reply gets the list address
and nothing else.
So if you then forget to remove one of the addresses (easily done) there will be two emails
This issue was discussed one or two years ago at the beginning of my subscription to the
list, but Tony Hoyle has a different view and I stopped nagging about it. After switching
to the newsserver it also was no problem, because there you actually do post only to
the server. Pity I can't use it at work though...

I will try to remember in the future to remove your actual address from the To: field :-)
Oops, almost forgot it this time again....

Ah, I guess it'll also prevent me from accidental multi-posting, right? >;]

BTW: I'm writing this for the umpteenth time now: Why is everybody always
CC'ing to my personal email address recently?! There's absolutely no
difference in the speed with which such messages reach me or the priority I
give to them as it all goes to that address anyway. The only thing you
accomplish by doing that is that I get your messages twice, which I start to
find increasingly annoying...
