I took both the Araxis Find Duplicate Files application and the MailSteward application out for a test, without actually deleting files or messages. So far, while both seem capable, they're not quite what I expected.At first glance and without digging deeper, it looks to me like MailSteward is mainly a mail archiving program. The "delete duplicates" function appears to be for removing duplicates from the archives, rather than from the active mailboxes. Maybe I misunderstand it; I'll have to dig deeper to see if the function can be applied directly to the original mail files.Araxis' Find Duplicate files does a speedy job of looking for duplicate files within a file directory hierarchy. Once duplicates are found, you can click "select duplicates excluding first occurrences" and then either delete them or move them to another location. This seems to be what I'm looking for, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to back out if the duplicate search was more than one directory level deep. Also, messages and their attachments appear to be treated as entirely separate rather than linked, which may cause Mail some confusion if the wrong attachments are deleted.-awlabrador
