[ROVERNET - UK] messages in triplicate

I have been approached before with a similar
abnormality but as Paul pointed out, it was developed
through the user's actions or email operations.
 I reviewed my inbox in the time frame you provided. 
I didn't receive duplicate messages.  I was wondering
if any other member received triplicate messages
during that period but no one has responded on that
question except for Paul.

Unless someone/some people report(s) the same
experience as yourself, I have nothing to go to the
host system administrator with.  

Sorry that you had trouble, but I am confident that it
was not a host server glitch.  That is, unless others
have the same experience.

(I can just hear the sys admin voice now :-(
