Hadn't heard of it, but could you send the headers of
several of such duplicated digests to me, or to David
Miller <> ?

The important part of the message headers we are interested
in are the "Received:" headers, which tell about the traversal
of the message, and very likely also the duplication point.

You say "every hour or so" ? It feels like some system is
trying to send a copy to you, but it does not get back an
acknowledgement that the receiving system has received the
message successfully, and thus it can't do otherwise, than
retry. The time-limit on retries is usually about 3 days,
after which you will not get the copy of that digest, but
you sure could get other mails duplicated..
