I did a Google search on your title windows live mail sends 2 copies of each message and got quite a few hits. One had this response in it:

Last night I started having the same problem on my computer as my friend had. I checked my settings in the WLM control panel. Under options went to email accounts. I had updated WLM and thought the settings would stay the same. However, I found that the box to 'leave copy of message on server'was checked and I had not had it checked in the previous version. Then also the box to' break apart messages more than 100 kb' was checked apparently by default. When I sent a forwarded message, with an attachment, to my brother last night he ended up with 11 copies of that message. One had the attachment and the rest just a grayed out folder. Sent it to myself and ended up with 11 copies. So I unchecked those two boxes, went to my webmail site, and deleted all the messages, then tried sending the same message to myself and only got one copy. With the size of messages we send these days, ie, .pps files, videos, etc, over cable or DSL there is no need to break up the messages and once I get the messages into WLM there is no need to keep a copy on my webmail server. So at least in my case that stopped the multiple copies and I fixed my friend's WLM with this same fix.
