In the lurkers section, it would be nice to have a delete accounts with duplicate email addresses, making the 1st on the only one not to be deleted.

Also in the newsletter section, to have a check box to send to duplicates or not.

Have you set (checked) the "Restrict to one member per e-mail address" option in 'Configuration->Member and forum options'? That should prevent duplicate accounts in the first place.

Yes I have now but it would be a nice option to be able to search my already subscribed members and delete those duplicate email accounts.

Have you considered a 'quick and dirty' fix for an already populated table, which would be to use phpMyAdmin on your db and sort the m_email_address column in ocp*_f_members? You could then see at a glance where the duplications occur and be able to delete those entries directly by making a 'multiple selection/delete' action.

The 'option' I leave to the developers to pick up. Perhaps you could sponsor it?

Take my advice. I'm not using it!
