hundreds of duplicate messages from mailserver...

	Hi People,

	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 ""
	on the host "". 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; 
	it's reasonable.)  

	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 
	this out.
