Someone else already told you about your personal mailing-list settings
to avoid multiple copies of messages; I wanted to add that the default
config on linaro-dev@ has always been for copies to be discarded by
You might be getting copies from other lists though (e.g. I get bug
updates from launchpad and from launchpad team mailing-lists), which
you can confirm by looking at the List-Id header or at the Received
headers. The big hammer is filtering copies out yourself as others
have suggested (procmail's formail -D is one example).

(same here; mailing-list traffic is kept in folders and mail directed
to me in a different one)
