            Bug ID: 344296
           Summary: The "remove duplicates" should have some options to
                    define duplicates
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 4.14.4
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: folders
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org

As for now only exact copies of mail can be removed. 
But working with imported mail or reimported backups does often give duplicates
that are slightly diffderent. 

For example the backed up mail has still flags by bogofilter but the new setup
uses spambayes. 
Or backed up mail uses addresse like "mail at domain.tld" but the new setup uses 
"Mail Sender <mail.domain.tld> which results in slight differences in the
header though the mail body is exactly the same ... 

This results in many duplicates floating around. Given the state of kmail in
which I would recommend lots of backups this is a really unconvenient

My suggestion (or wish as you wish) would be to have some options of criteria
on how the "find duplicate" funcionality works. Like "compare only mailbodies"
or "compare timestamp and ID"... 

thx for your attention, 

Reproducible: Always
