grep the maillog for the message id would be a start (#grep A12DE3901C
/var/log/maillog) but as the message id changes through the MailScanner
process (It's logged) I would really like to see all the logs for the
period of time that the duplicated message was processed e.g. 11:05:13 ->
11:06:23 to show the message being received by Postfix, held, processed my
MailScanner, passed to Cyrus for delivery (I think that was the POP server
you said you were using).

Here's one of the logs that produces the same email.
