That's the best explanation I've heard; it also goes to explain why 
others haven't had the problem. Over that number of recipients I guess 
there could be some redirections (through aliases) and other duplictes 
(it's possible to send mail to my mailbox via different domain names).

and as the OP said they've been rotated into the bitbucket, I guess it's 
best left here, with a note to OP to be suspecious next time, perhap s 
suspend sending while he checks things out:-)
