I remember this from earlier versions of KMail/Akonadi and I have a
feeling (no can not verify) that is a Bogofilter issue. Personally I
use Spambayes and CRM114, I have never found Bogofilter to be very good.

In any case choose anything but "keep both" or it will keep appearing.

There is something with KMail and filtering that is not quite "on
spot" as I and other users "see double" on certain mails that go
through filtering (CNet computer news on a daily basis arrive as 2
mail instead of 1) and this popup you mention I think is related to that.

you can try (am not sure it will help) from a console window after
quitting KMail:
1. akonadictl stop (repeat that until you get a message akonadictl is
not running)
2. akonadictl fsck
3. akonadictl vacuum

make a backup of data first and only do the backup when you have first
made "akonadictl stop" or your mail might still be running and your
backup might not save vital data
