'Double postings - why???'

I occasionally find that a posting of mine appears twice with
slightly different times (usually a minute or so apart) and possibly
slightly different subject eg "Re: DSO..." and "re:      DSO ...".
.
Anyone know why?
Does this happen to other people?
.
I am using Internet Exploder 4.
.
This may happen after I edit the outgoing message but if so there is
only one copy in the outbox before I send them.

My mail has been screwy for days - Double postings, some days
(?) apart. This mornings mail contained half a dozen or so
blank messages from different lists, and several repeats of msgs
I received yesterday.
My ISP is grossly over-subscribed. May be a factor.
Netscrape 3.0, BTW.

 A perfectly fine piece of software too (;-) and I trust *more*
reliable that Exploder.  Apart from the bugs that is, such as the
mark-and-copy working only every fourth time on average, but one can
tolerate familiar and simple bugs.

 But maybe that's only happening here, and it *should* be a Windoze API
function anyway, sheeting it back to Microslop, like the tendency to
crash reliably within 24 hours.  Funny how reliable my *oldest* WIN95
system is!

 My experience is that unless you are habitually changing software on
your system, all these temporary disturbances are almost certainly
someone else's fault, quite possibly your ISP.

 I used to get my mail over and over again; i.e., it failed to be
removed from my ISP's mail-server when acknowledged.  I whinged and was
told some real guff about it, but sometime later it stopped and now it
hasn't happened for many months.

 Quite obviously he didn't have the faintest idea how the thing worked,
there was some switch set wrong and eventually someone set it right by
accident!

 Curious observation; your (goflo's) message was missing a "reply-to",
which is for PICLIST, an aberration.

Paul,

Was it meant to be a joke that your posting about double postings was
itself a double posting?
:)

 Kind of.  However the two postings were slightly different; I aborted
midway through the e-mail send and added a couple of comments.  It
vaguely occurred to me (given the time of day) that it was double.
