Resend doesn't 'split up the message'. Each resend gets one copy, and each

Your MTA is suppressing the duplicates. Some of them do this. Some of

There simply is no solution. Each resend doesn't know what other resend
got the message and even if it did there's no way it would manipulate the
membership list appropriately. It's not a bug; it's simply something that
