Thread: Importing duplicate messages

    Default Importing duplicate messages

    This is nice but doesn't help me. People often use all the addresses they have for a contact, assuming that some no longer work. I then receive the same message in more than one inbox. When showing the master inbox, Apple Mail seems to hide duplicates by ID. But if I Select All and hit the capture key, EagleFiler goes into the individual inboxes, and the new skipping has no effect.

    I don't mind the duplicates so much, but this means the counts differ between Mail and EF, and I use those to confirm if the import worked.

    If the count is your concern, you could set Mail to show the duplicates.

    Another option would be to remove the duplicates in EagleFiler.

    Useful for all sorts of reasons. Thanks!
