    The only problem here is that you are making the loop. There is not way to fix it except you correct your forwards

    Yes but if I don't have SPAMASSASIN enabled I don't get double emails... Only happens when SPAMASSASIN is enabled...

    regardless of SpamAssassin, you've still created the loop.

    Follow it. Where is it supposed to stop?

    Instead, you need to add an extra step.

    If this is something where you have two people who need to monitor eachothers email for some reason, you need to set up separate mailboxes for them.

    email1 and email2 can be their addresses for the internet, but you should setup them up as forwarders, not accounts.

    Then, setup accounts called login1 and login2. These will be what the users login with to get and send their mail.

    Then, the simple fowards will be:
    email1 --> login1
    email1 --> login2
    email2 --> login1
    email2 --> login2

    notice, no loop.

    ===

    if changing their logins are too much problems, then create extra, separate accounts for the duplicates... such as:

    donttrustharry
    nevertrustdick

    then they can login to those eavesdropping accounts when they want to check on eachother. :)
