OMFG MAJOR BUG Could be great....ack Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Extremely brutal bug
After trying to reconcile a number of folders and selecting delete permanently, it cleared out 25 folders of not just the duplicates but the entire contents.
I had run this on the contents earlier of other sections without issue (it was NOT picking up a obvious duplicate messages)

If you use this, BACK UP YOUR EMAILS IF THEY ARE CRITICAL
10k+ messages gone
My order history, issues, warrantee, discounts, everything for the past 10 years

Saved me from doing this manually Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works wonderfully as promised (and fast!) on Thunderbird 2.0.0.24
I like the way you can preview emails before deleting them.

First time using this, so I checked every email selected to see if they were duplicates.
Not a single false positive.

Thank you!

worked great! exactly what I needed! Thank you very very much! The search is very fast, the search result window shows you very clear information to make sure what you will delete is really what you want to delete, and the extra options are very wise. Great

Like very much that it displays duplicates first and then offers selection options. Worked very well for me.

Mostly good Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am switching hosts and since I want to keep all the emails I have so far, I had to switch to POP3 (another TB nightmare). I ran this extension and I think it removed some, but it it left many more duplicates - yes, duplicates, same message.

They're not really duplicates

I often get this complaint. And it's always the case that the messages are just similar, not the same: An extra newline, a few seconds time difference etc. Try using fewer comparison criteria...

Remove based on specific header? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Can it be enhanced to compare a specific header? I use it to remove duplicate RSS items and the best would be if it compared the 'website' header

Works great, but a strange behavior from a few versions back Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using this addon for quite some time. (One of the mail gateway through which I forward an e-mail
occasional hiccups and send duplicate messages, and thus I need to use addon like this.)
This addon works fine and quite fast.

However, since a few version back, I have noticed strange behavior.
It used to be that if I am looking at the latest messae in a folder, and
if I try to remove the dupes in that foloder only, after the removal of duplication, the
current focus (of the messages, that is) is near the latest message in that folder (module the
deleted message.)

In the current version, the focus is left on a very old message. Thus, I am left in an old message in my folder and
have to scroll down to get to the latest message. (Yes, I keep the latest message at the bottom in my usage.)
This has been noticeable since early summer(? I am not sure). But this pesky behavior is a little
irritating.
Otherwise, I will give a five star :-)
Thank you for the great addon.

Great Tool - Some Odd Behaviour? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic tool that is really needed - particularly in a busy business environment.

There has been one change in behaviour recently. Running against a dovecot IMAP server with around a couple of hundred folders containing tens of thousands of emails, if we select "Review Search Results Before Deletion" everything works fine (although someone has to be here to press the button). If we un-tick this option, it finds no duplicates whatsoever. Nothing. Nada. I have tried playing around with all the other options but to no avail.

That's about the only failing I have found and it appears to be a newly introduced bug - older versions worked perfectly.

I'll give it 9/10 - it would have got 10/10 except for the minor hiccup.

brilliant (just some German missing) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You did a great job - thanks! The add-on works just fine and very quick for my some hundred mails.

Yet it took me some time to find out (by reading other comments) that I need to remove the checkmark on "skip special folders". Before I did that I tried hard to remove duplicates on my imap account (using special folders) with no success and also no message from the add-on except "Looking for duplicates".
I would prefer that you choose the default as "skip special folders" = NO.

By the way the German translation lacks some strings in "...extensions\{a300a000-5e21-4ee0-a115-9ec8f4eaa92b}\chrome\removedupes.jar\locale\de-DE\removedupes\removedupes-prefs.dtd"

Without them the settings dialog will fail.
There are also some other strings in the file that are not yet translated to German, but still English.

Thank you for your work.

Fixed in 0.3.5

The locale issue is fixed in 0.3.5 which you can download and which will become the released version very very soon.

There's a very important feature you haven't rewritten: preferred unanswered first. Without this, the thread is not indented correctly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

I do have it.

The extension does support this. You can sort the messages in the review dialog according to their headers, with the unanswered being first (or last). Then 'Keep First' does the trick.

Great add-on, just wish it worked for gmail IMAP Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It takes some tweaking sometimes (i.e. changing up the search criteria) to get all of them, but this add-on is fantastic!! Having recently moved (or more aptly in the process of moving) to Gmail IMAP services, I do see it doesn't work very well in this context (which is really too bad, as I was counting on this extension to help me merge my online and old pop folders and weed out the duplicates)...

Please file a bug...

If you're having trouble with dupe removal on an IMAP account, file a bug using http://www.mozdev.org/bugs or at least email me. The extension does work with IMAP accounts including GMail.

Poor / not complete Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Its a great tool, but it didn't work with over 50.000 messages (that could be explained by our very slow responding imapserver)

1 major drawback is that this tool needs to make a copy to the trashcan which slows it down considerably.

Please file bug reports for the first issues at www.mozdev.org/bugs .

As for the first issue, this is not true - you can choose to erase completely rather than move to trash.
