Thanks a lot. I didn't even stop to think how easy the test would be ^^

Indeed. That is good news. Especially since doing 
	neomutt "user <user at domain>" "othername <user at domain>"
	-> the To: line only contains "user <user at domain>".

So it seems dedup is taken care of. I only need to create a list of
addresses and ask neomutt to write a new mail with it.

My guess is it would depend on the MTA. However, I don't think it
matters to our use case, since the idea is to write a new mail to all
the senders, so there would be no-one in Cc: by default.
