Yes, 3257 posts in September 2002.

No idea.

I know that at some point there where troubles with the
gateway or mailing list software so it reposted lots
of mails. My simple script doesn't look at each post
and discards duplicates so that could be one explanation.

However, if my memory serves me I think that problem was
in the summer of 2001.
