In a domain environment, this problem affects at least 3 users when they send email. Periodically, when the user sends an email, multiple emails arrive at the destination. It's almost as if the sender clicked Send multiple times before message is actually sent.

Do you have AV installed on the server?  If so, the full name would help

This is pretty common for Symantec - infact most AV will do it, but Symantec is the worst offender - do you have the power to uninstall it and either install something else, or better yet scan your mail some other way?

Not really. I'll call Symantec though, I think we have a support contract. Thanks for your response. Will update the question with my progress.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
