Ive been having the same problem ever since OS 3.1 (or maybe 3.1.2) For me, its a temporary but annoying problem: most of the time, when new messages arrive, I see them duplicated in the message list, but one of the copies show a preview of the message itself, and the other does (just the subject, but no message). I can tap on either one to see the message. However, if I delete the message, it will not delete. And if I reply to one copy, things are haphazard as to whether the message will be marked as replied to. If I go back to the list of mailboxes, the unread count will show double the number of new messages, and when I go back into the mailbox, they will all be marked as unread again, even if Ive already replied to some.
Ive found that normally, going out to the list of the mailboxes, going back in to the mailbox, going back out to the list, going back in to the mailbox, etc., for a certain number of iterations can make the duplicates consolidate and all is normal. Its quite annoying and time-consuming, though, because I have to do this every time I get new mail, if I want to be able to delete messages or reply to them correctly.
I use IMAP to my universitys server. I dont know whether this problem is unique to IMAP or not...

I had previously done this, but created a new account before deleting the old one. This time I deleted all accounts and created a new account all over again (same settings, etc). It worked. THANKS!
