duplicate email from Apple/Eudora Internet servers


I am wondering if there is anyone else here who has gotten massive
duplicated email from a site running Apple Internet server or Eudora
Internet server.  The offending sites connect once every 15 to 30 minutes
and submit the same message as on previous connections.  Right now, I am
getting around this problem by outfitting victim users with a simple
'procmail' filter to quietly sink the duplicates.  But I am wondering if
there is any other solution available besides this, complaining the
postmasters of the remote site and complaining to Eudora and Apple.

Here is a sample SMTP conversation below:

Any ideas will be much appreciated!
