NethServer Version: 7.2009
I’m not sure if that has been asked before, but I was unable to find it anywhere. I’m having an issue with duplicate emails being sent to groups, particularly multiple groups that contain some of the same users, and my users are starting to complain about multiple copies of the same email.
For example, lets say I have 3 email groups. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. Now for the purpose of this example, Sales and Billing would have relatively the same users. Plus or minus a few.
The issue we are running into is that if I am a member of Sales, and I send an email to Sales, CC’ing Billing, and I’m on that as well, I will receive 2 copies of the email I just sent to those two lists. One for each of them. Now normally this wouldn’t be a problem, if you had email groups that had unique user memberships, but in my (and probably other peoples case too), the biggest problem we’re having is that when a user sends an email to a large group of users, and those users reply, the email doubles, triples, quadruples, etc. with each reply. Turning one or two emails, into 10, 30, 50 emails.
Is there a way programmatically, or other to have Nethserver discard duplicate emails being sent to the same user, when they are members of multiple groups attached to the email regardless of what group it came into?
