IMHO that's a good thing. I know some people in this list think they want deduplication, but sometimes when I'm later replying to a message (I've messages over a month old I know need replying) they really would prefer for it to be shown in they inbox when I finally reply to them rather than dovecot list mailbox (which they never end up reading then).

I'm not planning on implementing anything like that.
