KMail - Remove Duplicate Messages does not run

I have a lot of (light until middle heavy) items regarding the PIM and I'd like to resolve them one by one, if it is possible.
The first one is maybe not the biggest problem, but resolving it should make Akonadi System smaller and consequently give memory resource free.

Removing Duplicate Messages does not run. Akonadi Console shows activities, when it is launched, but duplicate messages are not deleted.
PIM Index active and completed before launching RDM.
I wonder, the search for duplicates takes less as 2 seconds. So I think, the command is ignored or goes in the sand ...

What can I do to solve it?
Maybe, launch the command (which one) from the console?
And what could be happen, if I let delete duplicate mails by an other application such kleansweep or komparator. Will Akonadi recognize, that some records have been deleted ans will es actualize the mails data bank correctly?

Environment
OS: OpenSuse 12.3 (x86_64) // Linux 3.7.10-1.28
KDE: 4.12.3
Kontact Container: Version 4.12.3
KMail: Version 4.12.3

Many thanks in advance

PS: I read the other topic about the same topic (viewtopic.php?f=215&t=110681&p=262566&hilit=+KMail+Duplicate#p262566), but maybe it happened something after a year ...

Are you using POP, IMAP, or disconnected IMAP?

Hallo einer,
Thanks for the attention!
You asked:
Are you using POP, IMAP, or disconnected IMAP?

Answer:
Sorry, I've forgot this information.
I'm using both IMAP and POP3. POP3 entries are 99% of all records.
More important: almost all duplicate mails derive from imports (backups) because KMail (round about versions 4.6) repeatedly crashed with data loss.

In which account (POP or IMAP) do you want to remove the duplicates? From what you say it should be POP, shouldn't it?

They were downloaded from a POP account and now they are under a maildir folder.
But I am not sure, I understand your question.

Has this been resolved? I am running Kubuntu 17.04 with PIM 16.12.3 and Kmail 5.4.3. I seem to have the same problem.
