This is a tool that helps remove duplicate items from the Outlook folders.
The PST that holds all the outlook items tends to grow quickly. When this grows big enough, it starts making the Outlook operation slow. Only solution is to reduce the size of the PST. While one could remove unimportant mail items, which is not entirely safe. Something you delete may be needed the very next day. Thus one safe remedy could be to remove duplicate items first. This tool helps find duplicates easily through flexible searches. Once found it is up to you to manage the duplicates the way you want to. The possible actions include deleting the duplicates straightaway. Other options include mark them expired, move them to ‘Deleted Items’ folder, flag them, copy to a folder or move them to another sub folder.
You can tweak the settings so that mail items with minor differences are correctly detected as duplicates. There are several properties you can define to detect a duplicate. These include text, subject, sender email, sender name, receiver name, internet header, date and time of sending an attachment file. The interface lets you set up searches as tasks. These searches will find specific type of duplicates you want to find. You select the searches you have set up and execute it with one click of the "run selected task" button. The log area shows you the items found and other events on running these searches. If you are a heavy outlook user, this is a handy tool that will be useful sooner or later. The slowing down of the Outlook is such a common problem! The software works with the MS Outlook 2000 and later versions in Windows 7/Vista/XP/2003/2000 operating system environments.
