Perhaps the system fell back to smtp after encountering problems with
esmtp. I wouldn't expect two headers though, and doesn't explain how
the second mail came through in double-quick time. Maybe it's useful
to know which header the more successful mail acquired (and was it
fractionally before or after this problematic mail).
