Currently variable kill-do-not-save-duplicates checks only the (car kill-ring) as docu explains: Do not add a new string to ‘kill-ring’ if it duplicates the last one.

Why do that? Why not just prevent duplicates in the first place, which is what the option currently does? If you for some reason get duplicate entries somehow, in spite of using the option to prevent them, you can always remove them. I don't understand how that would be something that would happen normally. What is the problem that this would try to solve/prevent? ---

Currently not a check for duplicates is implemented, but for a repeat.

When having alternating strings to copy, they go into the kill-ring one after one. That way it ended up having just two strings in the kill-ring, and previous content lost.

BTW implementing it would be a way more complicated as thought because of text properties.

BTW - it's a pain to remove all of the formatting of your mails to such lists.

Hmm, don't you see a formatting when sending.

Please consider using plain text, or at a minimum not using a colored (i.e. non-white) background.

Switched on "Readers Default Colors", which should help.

Just a request or suggestion.
