Recipients getting multiple copies of my e-mails

As recently as today (5-10-05), I sent an e-mail once and it was received
twice by the same recipient. This has happened before with this and another
recipient who are on the same ISP. I have checked my system for a virus (AVG
up-to-date) and spyware (Bazooka; Microsoft; Spyware Blaster; Adaware SE) and
found nothing. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

First, check the Outbox to see if it's going out and not sticking and
sending again.

Second, Tools | Accounts | Mail | <account name> | Properties | Advanced tab
and make sure the break apart is not selected.

Thanks for the response. "Break apart" was not and is not selected. Will need
to observe the outbox from now on, though no one else has indicated receiving
more than one copy. The message I sent today was a BCC to several recipients.
I've asked the others if they got more than one. Not all have replied, but
two have and said they got the message only once.

Disable scanning of outgoing (and incoming, while you're at it) mail by AVG.
It provides no additional protection and may be causing the problem.

I have received replies from several of the people to whom I sent the BCC
message. The only ones who received it more than once are the two who are on
the same ISP, that being in Romania. One of them reports e-mail messages sent
from there have been received more than once by the recipient in the U.S. In
fact, I have received duplicate messages from the other Romanian
correspondent several times. Therefore, I assume the problem is with the
server there.

Thanks to DGuess and "PA Bear" for their responses to this post.
