Hi Amon,

There is no way to automatically delete all of your duplicate contacts at once, but if you change your view in Outlook to "Phone List," you can then sort all of your contacts by the last modified date, and 
all of the imported contacts will be together.  You can then select all of these contacts and delete them at one time.

Cannot delete subreport
I am using Access 2003 and have a report I did a while back with a simple subreport. I want to remove the subreport but for the life of me can't figure out how to do it.

add news reader to Outlook 2003
Can anyone tell me how to add the newsreader button to the go menu in outlook 2003.

Try the following -- it seems to work for many: To get the News command back, go back to the Programs tab in Control Panel | Internet Options and change the default newsreader to Outlook Express. If OE prompts you to make it your default newsreader the next time you launch it, clear the "Always perform this check..." box and then click the No bu...

Rule for Deleted Items

But I have confirmed that the missing person has email in her deleted items folder going back to 2005 so it must be working. Is there any other location I should be looking? Also, we just had someone come in and migrate our Exchange environment from 2000 to a new...

I can not delete a duplicate personal folders list #2

Retrieval of Deleted Items After Being Deleted from the Deleted Items File

Pretty stupid, huh. Anyone. Can they be retrieved? Please help. Thanks. Sorry for sending this again but I seem to be computer illiterate and it has taken me some time to explain the whole situation. Thanks again. unless you use Exchange server with deleted retention enabled, you are most likely out of luck, but you can try something that might help....

deleting email in outlook, freezes before i can delete

Hi All, I want to re-raise the old issue of Fax numbers showing up in the Outlook Address book when one is sending an email. I know that this can be stopped by prepending the Contact's fax number with a letter so that Outlook doesn't see it as a valid fax number and therefore doesn't list it. What's always puzzled me, however, is that this fix doesn't work if the fax numbers are changed using an export to CSV...
