Exchange repeating inbound message every 5 minutes

My client is running Exchange Server 2003. He received an email (with an attachment) from a business associate at 3:54 this morning. Every five minutes since then he has received another copy of the same email. Headers in Outlook show this to be a different message. But when I pull this up in Message Tracking it is the same message that has gotten in a loop and keeps delivering it to the store. The sequence is:

SMTP: Message Submitted to Advanced Queuing
SMTP: Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue
SMTP: Message Sumbitted to Categorizer
SMTP: Message Categorized and Queued for Routing
SMTP: Message Queued for Local Delivery
SMTP: Message Delivered Locally to MyName@MyDomain.com
SMTP Store Driver: Message Delivered Locally to Store to MyName@MyDomain.com.

Five minutes later it repeats.

I have read posts about using MFCMAP to clear the queues, but I have never been in there before. I looked around in the SMTP TempTables but find no sign of this message.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

One other thought.  The messages keep repeating even if Outlook is not open.

Received another message from the same sender.  It broke the loop and the repeating stopped.
