Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate) 0.3.12 Requires Restart
Search and remove messages which are the same as other messages in your mail folders (referred to as duplicates or dupes).
About this Add-on
The original 'Remove Duplicate Messages' is missing important features, and does not have a free software license. This is a full rewrite, with an GPL-LGPL-MPL license. Performance has been improved and many features and capabilities have been added, including:
- Choice of comparison criteria (subject, author, date, etc).
- Comparison of message bodies.
- Action on multiple folders.
- Review dialog for double-checking which duplicates to delete and which to keep.
- Good performance on local folders with large number of messages; reasonable performance with IMAP and RSS accounts.
- Spiffy toolbar button+menu.
I had tried contacting the author of the original 'Remove Duplicate Messages' several times, without success. I would have liked to join forces and have just one extension, but that doesn't seem to work out.
Also, some locales are incomplete - help with them would be appreciated. Visit the BabelZilla translation website.
