Having duplicated emails is a common issues. This is not specific to

What I do myself with mutt is to bcc or cc myself on each send (not
manually, of course).

I wonder if your SMTP server doesn't store sent emails in the sent
folder itself (with mutt doing the same). Do you always use the same
SMTP server?

What happen if you use another folder to store your sent emails from
mutt (e.g. 'sent_mail')?
