hundreds of duplicate messages from mailserver...

I wrote to the KDE list about Kmail endlessly updating
itself and adding and bunches of messages to my INBOX
on my mailserver. Someone responded that it was
probably not a KMail problem, but a server problem. That
seems probably since evolution and mutt also have these
duplications. So far, I'm seeing between 5 and 20 copies
of most mails.
I did not set up the imap stuff; the networking volunteer did
that. I am running dovecot in my jail "aristotle.thought.org"
on the host "sage.though.org". aristotle also hosts my DNS and
web server. (FWIW, I'm still using my 400MHz Kayak with plenty
of disk and about 0.5GB RAM for sage. I monitor the load;
My questions: are there any mail-server types amongst us who have
any idea where I can began tracking this problem? We're using
procmail to put certain mail in various directories under kmail.
I haven't used procmail since the early 90's and don't remember
very much about it. ...I won't hypothesize any further and further
confuse things. Just hope that somebody onlist can help me sort
