I do not get dupes of all mails otherwise I'd suspect double subscription.
The Avoid Duplicates flag is set. This only happens for mails that have
the list in the CC - I understand the dupe flag is for when people use
ReplyAll and the recipient is in both the list of subscribers and the CC
for the mail.
It's not just the recipient, but the exact same recipient
address. So, if you're subscribed to the list with one address, and
they cc: a different address of yours, then the system has no way to
tell that these are both the same person.
I believe the code is supposed to filter duplicate
Message-IDs to a given recipient no matter how those dupes are generated,
but I'm getting them. Any ideas?
No, the code doesn't work at the Message-ID level. It works at
the level of the listed recipients in the To: and CC: headers.

If you want filtering done at the Message-ID level, then you need
to apply that on your end -- either use a program like procmail to
filter all your incoming mail, or set up your MUA to discard
duplicates, etc....

There's nothing more that Mailman can do to help you.
