10.4: Remove some extraneous Mail mailboxes
Authored by: croasmun on Jul 13, '05 09:48:57AM

Is this why I get 3 or 4 duplicate hits for all my mail messages when searching in Spotlight? If not, does anyone know why this might be happening (or at least how to get Spotlight to show the directory location for a mail message that it finds so that I could do some detective work)?

10.4: Remove some extraneous Mail mailboxes

You can drag the result from the Spotlight results (the big window) to any plain-text window (TextEdit text-only, Terminal, etc.) to see the path.

I currently get dupes of mail messages in my spotlight searches because my hard drive has a backup copy of my home folder (incl Mail).
