quick guess: you all outgoing mail via an ISP provided MTA, and for
some reason Postfix thinks the transfer has failed and tries again,
but the remote MTA delivers the mail anyway.
Anyway, worth checking for something along these lines in your log
files... See if any delivery attempts are marked as failed for some
reason and/or if Postfix makes multiple attempts to send the mail.
