Procmail does this very nicely for me, as I'm quite a few lists where
receiving dupes can be a problem. My .forward calls procmail with:

	"|IFS=' '&&exec /usr/bin/procmail -f-||exit 75 #bmm"

and in my .procmailrc, the filtering for duplicates is done with:

	:0 Wh
	| formail -D 128000 msgid.cache
