Sure it can. Just use formail with -D. It will discard duplicates based
on a cache of message-id's. For example, I'm using the following
# remove duplicates
:0 Wh: .msgid.lock
| formail -D 65536 .msgid.cache

Nah. Removing you from CC (or the to: field) is too much hassle.
Furthermore this is something I want people replying to me to *NOT* do.
Emails not directly addressed to me get much lower priority in my mbox.
