Hi Tristan,

I'm not an MySQL expert but DISTINCT removes duplicate *rows* from your
result set. As you select email AND file_name you will always have a unique
row (combination of email and file_name). Try without specifying file_name:

SELECT DISTINCT email FROM `completed_downloads` WHERE `bu` = 'reech' AND
date BETWEEN '2004-06-01' AND '2004-06-30'
