Mailbox duplicate detection

The manual says:

  • EagleFiler checks for duplicates at the file level. Thus, when you import a mailbox file containing a bunch of e-mail messages, EagleFiler checks for a duplicate mailbox but does not check the individual messages within that mailbox file for duplicates.

Does this mean that if EagleFiler skips importing a mailbox again I can assume the files have the same… name? size? If it’s not checking for individual messages, how does EagleFiler determine the mailboxes are duplicates?


It’s checking the data of the mailbox file itself. So, if it skips the mailbox as a duplicate, it means that you already have another mailbox that has the exact same messages (also in the same order).

Great, thanks.
