    Hi,

    Is it possible to email everyone in my inbox without duplicating if they appear in my inbox more then once?

    I want to send out a notification that I have changed my email address to everyone who has ever contacted me, but not spam them 50 times if they have emailed me 50 times.

    I can't see anything that will work in rules.

    The closest I can get is http://basics4mac.com/article.php/notify_changes

    Anyone able to help?

    Thanks

    I was hoping there would be an automatic way of doing it as that would take forever to deal with 3 years worth of emails.

    Anyone else?

    There's likely an automator workflow, though i'm not in front of my mac to check.

    A quick google brought this http://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?id=25875

    not so clear cut as it uses python to extract the addresses from files.

    Thanks Mike,

    Looks interesting but I'm not sure from the description it will do what I need.

    Also I don't have Lion and I'm in New Zealand where I have a 20GB cap, so downloading Lion would root me for the month.

    Would love to hear if anyone can think of a work around in Snow Leopard.

    Cheers

    I would think doing it manually would be better in the first place. You can eliminate all of the automated e-mail addresses (that your message will bounce back from) as well as eliminate people you never talk to anymore.
