Hello and welcome to geeks to go,
when you say that two identical ones are recieved are you meaning that they are in the sent folder?

could be caused by your firewall, similar things happen on this forum. I'll look around for a fix then get back to you.

the CC portion is for Carbon Copy...for when you want to send multiple people the same email...but in such a way as to send it primarily to one person...but also send a copy to someone else...sort of like manager's sending an email to an employee about something they've done wrong...the manager would send the email to the employee...and cc a copy to their supervisor so that they can review the mail as well

bcc works the same...except the primary recipient doesn't get notified of the BCC...as far as they know...they are the only people who got the email...

unless you're trying to do this...there should be nothing in the CC or BCC area

ya i think he relizes it now. Also in e-mail, putting a "," then a space after each e-mail works just as well as CC however i find using the "," in the first bar easier to use.
Just something to think about.
Hope all is working well now, if not send an e-mail back.
James

Also just adding to what dsenette said, if you wondering what BCC stands for its "Blind Carbon Copie".
