The Web site should have been designed to send only a single summary
e-mail for each actual purchase, regardless of how many times you view
the summary page.

(For that matter: If a customer makes repeated, identical purchases of
an item (as opposed to purchasing multiple units of the same item), the
Web site should use a popup or e-mail requesting confirmation of the
multiple, identical purchases. But maybe they do this already.)

Good software anticipates likely user errors.
