> is happening in addition to the mail being relayed via the normal route.
> The end result is subscribers (or at least most of them) are receiving
> one "original" message from si-list plus one "rogue" message with the
> same content but relayed through a misconfigured router or server.
> A system known as "ntserver1.highspeedsolutions.com" (should've know "NT"
