If multiple versions of the same person's address are in your DB there's
not much you can do other than having them individually clean up their
own accounts.

  Exception: You can likely (not guaranteed) assume that
  bubba at school.ac.uk is the same as bubba at winkle.school.ac.uk.  Export
  your subscriber list out to a text file (list-members) and then run a
  sed script to find these duplicates.
