Subject [jira] [Created] (JAMES-2519) Duplicate entries in sent items
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2018 09:55:00 GMT
John Bester created JAMES-2519:

             Summary: Duplicate entries in sent items
                 Key: JAMES-2519
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-2519
             Project: James Server
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Remote Delivery
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
         Environment: Ubuntu 18.04 Server (James)
Postgresql 10 (message store)
Ubuntu 16.04 (Desktops) with Evolution (Email client)
            Reporter: John Bester

To get around issues where remote delivery does not work (relay denied), I have configured
email clients to use the SMTP server directly and move sent items to James SENT folder. While
this works, it does have a strange side effect. If you send an item to an external recipient
and CC to a recipient in the domain handled by James, then multiple copies of the sent item
ends up in SENT folder. While this might look like a email client problem, I would have expected
this to have happened before switching to James. So, my guess is the following happens:

1. You send a message to external recipient and CC to internal recipient (email client uses
external SMTP server)
2. Email client copies mail to SENT folder 
3. Fetchmail retrieves a copy from external POP3 server
4. Fetchmail interprets "FROM" address and stores it in SENT folder of sender
