Removing Duplicate E-mail Messages From A Mailbox

Linux, SysAdmin, Technical
Occasionally your mail delivery scheme might hiccup, leaving you with duplicate copies of email messages sitting in your mailboxes. I find this happens occasionally if something goes wrong with fetchmail - you kill the fetchmail process before it has expunged the deleted email from the remote POP3 server, so the next time you run fetchmail it downloads a second copy of each email. This is a simple process that I came up with to remove duplicate email messages from a maildir format mailbox. As a bit of background, a maildir mailbox is a small directory tree: $ du .boxes.xml-dev 4 .boxes.xml-dev/tmp 124 .boxes.xml-dev/new 52340 .boxes.xml-dev/cur 52920 .boxes.xml-dev $ Hierarchy is represented by components of the mailbox name separated by dots, so the mailbox above is called xml-dev and it is in the boxes mailbox.

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix1500 not staying connected

Electronics, SysAdmin, Technical
Fujitsu ix1500 does not stay connected to Windows 10 Computers. So far the only thing that seems to work to get them to re-connect is a reboot, not exactly a great solution in most of my user's cases. Have tried all known troubleshooting, even some pretty far out there stuff. OK, so the issue was... drum roll please... Another Imaging device had been taking over the Scanner, my main suspect was an HP printer with scan function, once I had disabled the drivers for the other imaging units (that were not needed) it started working perfectly again. I appreciate the responses. So to be clear, the solution was Device Manager>imaging devices>disable all other devices
