Microsoft Outlook is quite susceptible to store duplicate emails and thus takes up a lot more space for its data files than required. The Duplicate email remover is a Microsoft outlook add-on that does a beautiful job of keeping the data files lean and clean. This add-on precisely detects the duplicate emails and gives you options to act on those as required. These options can include purging such emails, keeping the emails, storing them to a different folder for future analysis or even exporting them to a different data file to deal with later.
It could be a tedious task to find and delete duplicate emails in outlook manually. Duplicate email remover finds the exact copies for you to act upon in a single folder or in multiple folders as selected. This add-on uses a lot of criteria before it zeroes in on duplicate emails and thus you can be rest assured that you are not dealing with single copies. These emails can be dealt with in many flexible ways than just deleting.
This add-on works beautifully, however the flip side is that it could take a lot of time if you email files are large stores of messages. As the search widens, the criterion also become complicated, resulting in slower results. Faster results can be seen within a folder, however with multiple folders to search, the add-on becomes slower due more dependencies and increased criteria for search.
Emails can multiply as a result of email migration, copying or reconfiguration of accounts and these could be quite difficult to isolate and act on. To deleted duplicate emails, this is the only add-on that we are aware of and it works on most versions of Windows (XP/2003/Vista/7) and across different versions of Microsoft Outlook (2000/2002/2003/2007/2010). Thus, it is ideal for most users using the Windows platform.
While using the duplicate email remover add-on, you can also assign priorities to the folders to be searched in, so that the software can assess the duplicates thoroughly. The mails thus searched can be removed directly or stored in a different folder to assess and take action at a later date.
The Duplicate email remover is simple software to use and does not come with irritating dialogues. However, this add-on could be bettered by having a command-line interface and can be made to work speedier.
