In the cases where I do send to a mailing list or something, I do
expect two copies. But in this case I can see _many several_
duplicates at times.

though I don't have an example to hand.

How exactly do I do that?

When offlineimap falls over, it does mention some debug log saved
somewhere, but I've never been able to find it.

Thanks for your time,
