Serves him right for snooping in other peoples mail :-)

Anyway, perhaps the Archive Mail line in MailScanner.cfg could be made a 
custom function, which looked up the message-id in the MailWatch database 
(or its own database) and returned "none" if the message-id had been seen 

(Not sure if the mail is logged to the MailWatch database at once, or at the 
end of the batch. If the latter is the case, it wouldn't work, as the 
duplicate messages are most probably in the same batch)
