Config conf = new Config("uaeu_server_config.prop");
  String host= conf.get("mail_server"); //"195.229.162.3";
  int port =Integer.parseInt(conf.get("mail_port"));
  String[] recipients = to.split(",");
  InternetAddress[] addressTo = new javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress[recipients.length];
  for (int i = 0; i < recipients.length; i++){
	  System.out.println();
    addressTo[i] = new javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress(recipients[i]);}
  Collection toCollection = Arrays.asList(addressTo); 
  HtmlEmail htmlEmail = new HtmlEmail();
  htmlEmail.setHostName(host);
  htmlEmail.setTo(toCollection);
  htmlEmail.setFrom(from);
  htmlEmail.setSubject(subject);
  htmlEmail.setHtmlMsg(emailTemplate);

  // set the alternative message
  htmlEmail.setTextMsg("Your email client does not support HTML messages");

  // send the email
  htmlEmail.send();

>>>String[] recipients = to.split(",");

Can you post here the value of the variable "to"?

just to confirm, that it is not called twice, please put a log (System.out.println) before line 21, and let us know if that log is not printed twice

also print the recipient length on line 6, see if these are the same names

Does it send two messages conssitently all the time, or only from time to time?

I'm asking because I'm using JavaMail extensively and although in absolute majority
of cases it works as expected, from time to time I experience cases of double emails.
So maybe it is some quirk in JavaMail itself. But I experience this behavior in fact very rarely. perhaps once
in several hundred emails.
If you see it consistently all the time than this is probably another issue.

ioanton : the value is one email address

gurvinder372: i already added the two line in the begning of the method and at the end. it is printed once.

for_yan: it is happening today, was working fine with me ><

----

I use apache common mail library http://commons.apache.org/email/userguide.html
when i remove this line "htmlEmail.send();", it sends the email one time ><
