Why use our tool to find duplicate Outlook messages?

Of course, you can try to search for duplicates yourself. To do this, you need to compare message subjects, senders, recipients, attachments, body text, and the dates of many different messages. This is not easy even if you need to check a dozen or two messages in one folder. But if you have many duplicates and they are in different folders, then it is extremely difficult to do it yourself and will lead to mistakes. You will spend a lot of time, surely make a mistake and decide that the good message is a duplicate. As a result, you will not pay due attention to such a message, and it will be lost amongst the others. That is why it is always better to use special software that will find duplicated Outlook messages quickly and correctly.

Feel free to run the utility as soon as you install it

By default, the program searches for duplicate messages separately in each selected Outlook folder and assigns them the "Duplicate" category. If the expiration date is specified, they will be crossed out in the Outlook message list after that date, so you can find and remove them manually. This is perfectly safe and will not lead to the loss of any data.

Searching for duplicate messages across Outlook folders

  1. If the same messages are found in several folders at once, the ones in the lowest priority folders will be considered duplicates.
  2. If the high and low-priority folder lists are empty or if the messages are in the same folders, the oldest message is considered a duplicate.
  3. Priority is determined by the position of the folder in the high or low-priority folder lists.
  4. A message from the highest priority folder is considered the original, and any message below is considered a duplicate.

Where can I search for duplicate messages?

  • In any mailboxes and folders of your Outlook profiles, including Exchange Public Folders and Outlook Search Folders.
  • In PST data files that can be connected in Outlook or our program.
  • In the selected email messages, using our Outlook add-in.
  • Massively in user mailboxes, and Exchange Server and Office 365 Public Folders using the command line app provided by our product.

Use a standalone app or run directly from Outlook

You can find duplicated messages from both a standalone application or directly from the Outlook plug-in. If you run a search for duplicates from Outlook, you can tag duplicates among the selected messages. Searching for duplicates is the same using all available options; use any that is convenient for you.

Search for and tag duplicate emails in user mailboxes

Batch processing of user mailboxes from the command line is available in the Professional Edition. Instead of removing duplicates, you can highlight duplicate messages for users. Subsequently, it is up to each user to decide what to do with the duplicates.

Search for duplicate Outlook messages by schedule

In order to keep your inbox in order, you need to periodically clean it from duplicates. You can do this by configuring the command line utility to start from the familiar Windows Task Scheduler.
