What I use for this purpose is a Thunderbird extension. It let's the
user pick one or multiple mailboxes and search for duplicates in all of
them. The list of duplicates is then presented and one can pick, what to
do with them (Delete or move to Trash)...
This is not a server-side solution, that you were asking for, but it may
be even better for those of your users, who use Thunderbird. Search
Thunderbird's extensions web-site for the extension named "Remove
Duplicate Messages (Alternate)".
