[ROVERNET - UK] messages in triplicate

Thanks for all your comments.  Since the problem developed spontaneously
so to speak and then disappeared again, during a period when I was not
at work (I read this stuff on my work computer) and didn't even turn on
the computer, and during which I don't think any of our company network
people were diddling with our network, I still find it difficult to
believe that the problem was anything to do with the receiving end.
However, it has gone away, for the present at least, so I won't worry
about it!

Hi ic,
I had a few duplicate messages but it wasn't any bother, nor was it
persistant. There just seemed to be a batch of them, then it cleared, ok
best wishes
