I'm assuming you know No Doubt's earlier material? There are a few other possibilities like Second Time Lucky, Stan Or Itchy, The Checkered Cabs, and Muff Said. How important are the horns, swing revival feel and other third wave elements? There are also some other cool female-fronted ska bands like The Interrupters and Dance Hall Crashers, but I don't know if they're close enough. I'm pretty interested in this topic myself, because while I was really into third wave ska back in the late 90s when it was huge, I wasn't quite as into female vocalists as I would be later.

Horns? 100% important, but I won't turn my nose up at any quality female-fronted ska that skimps on them.
Swing revival feel? Not super important, but definitely icing on the cake.

I'll have to check some of these out!

EDIT: And so I have. Well, I previewed them, at least. I enjoyed what I heard from Second Time Lucky and The Checkered Cabs, but I wasn't too wild about Stan Or Itchy and Muff Said. However, those other two recommendations--The Interrupters and Dance Hall Crashers--are FUCKING AWESOME.
