We are getting duplicate tickets when an email comes in to us but the 'reporter' is only getting one automated email response - which is good.
I noticed on the duplicate ticket the assignee becomes the reporter. Can you please shed some light as to why it is automatically creating a duplicate ticket please?
this can have multiple reasons. It can be (a) an automation, (b) wrong setup or (b) replies to the ticket from new emailadresses.
Can you elaborate how the duplicate is created? Does the customer only send the initial email (or does he reply)? Do you get two exact copies of the initial email as two tickets?

The most likely scenario or should I say typical scenario is where someone that is copied on the original email replies to the original email which results in a duplicate ticket. The reason for this is that the Jira ticket number is required to be in the subject for a reply to result in a comment.
Who is the reporter on the duplicate ticket? Based on that I still have to wonder if the individual that is the reporter is replying to the original email at night response back from Jira. Would it be possible to work with your IT group to have them check the logs of the mail server generally they can trace emails and you can really find out what’s going on fairly quickly using such tools.
for Jira Service Management there are two logs you can view - a processing log and a connectivity log.
More about them you can learn here:
Have you had the chance to look into the logs? If so, are there also two occurrences for one specific mail?
You also could share a screenshot to help Community members better understand from what is probably happening from the logs - just make sure to blank out any personal data in the screen shot.
Please also check if there are Automation rules for the troubling Jira Service Management project.
it would be interesting to see the "Processing log", where all incoming emails can be seen.
In case there are two inbound emails for the ticket (one from your customer, another from your email address) the next step would be to find out why that second email is generated.
I agree with Markus. If possible please have also a look into the second log.
From the first log there are some connection issues visible. Those errors are worth having a deeper look, also - I guess. However, it might be a different issue not related to the doubles mails you encounter.
Thanks for clarification, that suggests the mail channel in this case is fine and only some sort of Automation comes to mind.
You would need to check all potential occurrences for Automation (incl. Workflow Postfunctions) to see where the doubled requests originate from.
Hey @salvarez, I have another idea. JIRA has mail setup in various places, that means (a) on a global level and (b) on a project level.
If could be that you have set up both handlers to the same mailbox:
You could check both places.
