Does this mean that when whatever "webservice" is responds (to 
whatever asks it what whenever) in less than 1 minute or in more 
than 2 minutes mail is not duplicated but otherwise it is? If so, 
this problem seems just as odd as your mail setup.

In any case, it's very hard for anyone here to know what you are 
talking about.

Because the tooth fairy decided she wanted to be a smtp fairy 
instead and uses your system as a teaching tool?

If you want any better answer than that, you should try give more 

As a start, I suggest you compare the Received headers between 
the first and second copy of the same mail to see if/where they 
differ. This can give a hint as to where the mail is duplicated. 
And of course you should check your logs...

A common reason for duplicates is a timeout or lost connection 
somewhere in the chain between origin and destination.
