well this is second time I've seen your message & it seems to be a
frequent occurence :-(
havn't checked to see if every message is doubled though ....
examining the headers it seems that your mail is relayed via
darkstar.sysinfo.com unless it should be it may be bouncing back all the
( sorry - no time to check all the headers from the firewalls list :-( )
add to that that I don't find either of darkstar.sysinfo.com or
184.108.40.206 in the DNS database + the fact that there is no route to
that IP address ( get stuck in ibm.net's backbone network with a host
unreachable ) - something funny is going on
P.S. what has the firewalls list owner to say :
