The feature solves an issue related to the use of an e-mail program's "Reply with History" functionality. It identifies and removes redundant e-mails, i.e. mails which are contained in other e-mails either as attachment or as e-mail history. Redundant e-mails may be removed from the mail database resulting in non-redundant and concise e-mail stores. The advantages of the feature are shown in an example.
