    Duplicates (Outlook 2003)

    Just built a new PC. New install of Outlook 2003. Put the pst file from the old machine into the ...user/local settings/...outlook folder [exact same file path from which it came].

    Start Outlook and my address book has two of everything. Evidently, my email accounts are not and were not included in the .pst file so I had to set up my email accounts from scratch. Then, I click on the Send/Receive button and Outlook retrieves over 600 messages! A good look at the Inbox reveals that I have two of nearly every email. Same date, same subject, exact duplicates.

    I manually removed all of the duplicate address book entries; that didn't take too long. But going through all those messages will take forever (almost). Is there a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> program or add-in that will clean this up?

    Mail Tools for Microsoft Outlook lists several duplicate removers. Most of them are commercial products, but some have a free trial download, and the last one (Outlook Duplicates Remover) is free.

    Thank you. I'm using the free program now. It seems to be working fine.
