Duplicate emails get downloaded

Removing duplicate emails

To remove duplicate emails in a folder, select multiple messages (or select all messages in a folder by clicking Edit ▸ Select All or pressing Ctrl+A) and click Message ▸ Remove Duplicate Messages.


Downloading duplicate emails may be due to one of the following reasons:

  • There are several copies of the same message in the mailbox

  • Evolution is having a problem with the UIDL extension.

  • The cache files located at $HOME/.local/share/evolution/mail/local/ are not writable.
