    Default Eliminate Duplicate Emails

    I'm trying to find a way to eliminate duplicate email messages.

    I can do this easily in procmail with the following rule, but am unable to have users call procmail from Zimbra, and can't find a "No Duplicates" feature in the mail filters section.
    :0 Wh: msgid.lock
    | formail -D 32768 procmail.NO_DUPLICATES_MESSAGE_ID_CACHE

    Is there any way to do this today?

    Default zimbraMessageIdDedupeCacheSize

    Zimbra supports a memory-based version of this (i.e. it does not persist through server restarts). Set the "zimbraMessageIdDedupeCacheSize" attribute on the server's configuration and the server will keep that many recipient/Message-ID pairs in a FIFO map, dropping any duplicates it sees.

    Hi,

    I too got the duplicate email issue. In my sent folder I can see that every message got duplicated.

    "Set the "zimbraMessageIdDedupeCacheSize" attribute on the server's configuration and the server will keep that many recipient/Message-ID pairs in a FIFO map, dropping any duplicates it sees."

    will this works for me? How can I set that?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your reply. After selecting the option that you suggest, I could still see duplicates emails that I have sent in my SENT folder.

    Default Clarification

    That will keep emails that you send to mailing lists from coming back into your Inbox. It will not remove existing duplicates.
