Already done. I've reached the proper admin at Netscape, and the
repeat messages should have already stopped.

Sorry, that would be me.
An error with our mail server caused a great deal of mail to be
bounced to me. The majority of this mail is messages sent from
customers to our newsgroups where it is processed. I have been
attempting to repost this mail to our server, but obviously I
have inadvertently resent a number of messages to external
mailing lists as well.
I am about 1/3 through the backlog now. I will attempt to filter the
remaining messages for destinations that are outside of the company.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
