(Also, when I restored the Envelope Index file, it duplicated tons of messages -- any way to get rid of these?)
You should not be deleting files unless you know what you're doing and the consequences of your actions. Deleting an Envelope Index file doesn't duplicate messages, so there's something else going on that you haven't mentioned. You have more than one email account, and I suspect at least one of them is an IMAP account. True?
If you want to reduce the size of your mailbox, delete messages. Can you honestly say you have a need for 5 years worth of email? If not, get rid of them.
