Spotlight considers anything in Library (all of them: /System/Library, /Library, and ~/Library) to be a "System file". (Exception: Yosemite considers /System/Library/CoreServices to be an applications folder and not a system files folder.)

Make a new column in one of the pages that has a formula like... =if(thispage!D2=otherpage!D2,"*","") This will make a column where all the duplicates have a *.

This is pretty easy in the version I'm using (14.4.6). Simply select a message and hit the Move button. Move the message to whichever folder you desire.
