This is a full rewrite of the original, proprietary, of the 'Remove Duplicate Messages' extension, with an GPL-LGPL-MPL license. The rewrite has included significant performance improvement, and several important 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.
There's also a SeaMonkey version, though not as frequently tested.
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.
* Locales: Filled in missing additional string (partly with English though)
* Fix: Review dialog dupe tree status bar doesn't show up with some versions of Thunderbird.
Relative to 0.3.16:
* Compatibility: After a lot of work, the extension is now compatible Thunderbird versions up to 68.x
* Fix: The review dialog check-mark for messages selected for keeping will no longer disappear under certain circumstances.
