gmail duplicate mails with multiple labels

Asked by Stefano Ongeri on 2010-10-04

Hi I configured popper to check my gmail account on multiple labels.
Now mails with multiple labels show up multiple times in the indicator applet and actually get counted multiple times when showing totals in the notify bubble.
Are there any plans to eliminate these duplicates? Maybe a configuration flag to enable / disable duplication check?

Actually I was not aware of this issues. Gmail labels are not the same as normal IMAP folders. An email can only reside in one folder but it can have multiple labels. That's different from the IMAP folders concept. If the same email appears multiple times in Popper it has obviously not the same ID. Therefore Popper treats it as a different email because the ID is the only possibility for Popper to distinguish between emails.

So, this issues needs further investigation on my side. Please be patient.

Thanks for the answer! I'll follow the bug status now. Love popper, especially the configuration tool.
