Dovecot? Good that makes life easier, I think (Never used it but I believe
it uses standard maildirs?). Assuming you are running maildir, can you go
to the mailbox where the duplicated mail was delivered and ls -l the
directory. This should give the true message id that Postfix gave the
message on delivery. They *should* be unique as detailed in one of the
RFC's (Postfix does follow this).

If the message id's are unique then I would suggest the mail is being
duplicated by the sender or by an interupted SMTP session.

If they are not then it's a Postfix/ MailScanner problem.

My guess is the former but I wait to be shown my guess is off mark again!
