Auto-delete duplicate emails

Entirely my own fault, but I'm on a couple of email lists under two addresses that both resolve to my email account. I'm a huge fan of filters and have a ton set up, but anyone know of a way to auto-delete duplicate emails (identical bodies) so that I don't have to hand-handle them?

Many thanks.

Can't you simply unsubscribe from one address and leave the other one unchanged?

Of course, and wherever possible, but there are too many remaining instances where it's by-hand stuff that doesn't get changed quickly. The question isn't so much whether there are ways to avoid having people send me duplicate emails, but whether there are ways to delete duplicate emails when they arrive.

Something like this, in other words. If not exists or not possible, that's life, but thought I'd see whether I was missing anything.

I believe that may be rather tricky with Runbox' webmail filters.

However, if you check your mail with a mail client, the client might support more complex filters like

Code:
If mail is from abc and recipient is foo then move mail to folder duplicates.
where abc is the actual sender and duplicates a folder to which you can copy the duplicate emails.

If you receive duplicate mails at foo@server and bar@server, this might be an approach.

Caution! Test the filter thoroughly to make sure you don't inadvertently delete any important mail. I'd highly recommend not to automatically delete any mails until you are 100% sure that the filter works exactly as you want it to work.
