I don't want you to change anything.

I want to see the logs.  You still haven't shown me the logs I am looking

By the way, it doesn't make much sense to use different values for XXX and 
YYY.  After all, there's no guarantee which one will arrive first.

I don't understand this.

Many systems are not real time.  We are trying to understand how your 
system works.  I can't help you without more information.

Can you show me everything in the INN logs ($pathlog/news and 
$pathlog/news.notice) starting from just before the *original* email is 
sent, until after the second copy of the message is rejected?  This should 
*include* some information about the first copy of the message as well.
