Why Do I Have So Many Duplicates?
Using Outlook gives you power to control your contacts, calendar and email messages from one easy to use email client. You can send and receive emails, add and edit contacts and manage tasks and appointments in the calendar with a minimum of effort.
In fact, everything is so simple to do it’s easy to find yourself repeating tasks, reading the same emails twice, finding duplicate contacts, and so on.
One of the main problems with Outlook is that you can end up with duplicates. This can happen with just a single email account or if you have your account synced with an additional Exchange server or perhaps even a Hotmail account. If you use a Windows Mobile device which is synced with your computer (via ActiveSync) this is another way in which duplicates can occur.
Emails might be sent to all of your accounts, and your contacts will be split up into different folders, such as one per account, and this is another way in which duplicate information can end up in Outlook.
However you probably know all of this already – what you want to know now is how to find and remove duplicates!
