simple you can set the maildid column unique in the table which you want to enter.......
when you try to insert a duplicate email id..it throws an error...catch that error it consist of errorid for duplicate record insertion...you can check if duplicate record inserted in catch...like
if(errid=="error id for duplicate record insertion")
{
Messagebox.show("Record alreadyb exist");
}
2.Otherwise you have to select the distinct record so that it wont contain any duplication...

Also you can create a temporary table and insert there initially with INSERT INTO .... SELECT DISTINCT EmailID...
