Yes, base your listbox on a query that excludes duplicates.

Sure. Base the Listbox on a query with only the fields that you want to see,
and its Unique Values property set to Yes.

duplicate a field in sub folders
When I add sub folders to the SENT folder they 'by default' show the FROM field instead to TO, Is there a way I can tell outlook to use the TO field in all subfolders of SENT. Can't think of an easy way to tell it to automatically show field in all subfolders, but it is easy to set them one by one. In each folder, show the Advanced tool bar, then select the field choser and drag the fields you want to where you want them. Any fields you don't want, just drag away.
