Unfortunately, eliminating dupes, aka "CC'd" mail is not that easy. I
use to have a sieve rule that eliminated mail that was both sent to a
mailing list and CC'd to me. I even went as far as having the
superfluous copy sent to SpamCop thinking that perhaps the sender might
get the idea that I didn't not want and specifically requested not to
receive multiple copies of the same draft. Unfortunately, over the years
I have not keep that rule updated. Now, thanks to you and a few other
morons, I now have been sufficiently motivated to update it. Thanks
Doug, it is not yet 6:30am and I have all ready added to my day's
