Purging duplicate messages
I am using both Outlook and OE. Using both I want to export my OE local
files and import them into Outlook for a permanent record. But over time I
have accumalated my duplicate messages in Outlook.
Is there some way of purging all Dups in Outlook?
The best way to do remove duplicates would be to sort by a date.
Reveived, sent, create, but most likely the modify date will do the trick.
If you do not see the modify date in your view you can add it by modifying
the Current View and adding modified to the list of fields in the Inbox.

Does anybody know if Outlook 2002 or later can be set-up to
automatically add outgoing e-mails to a personal folder of
your choosing? I'd like to be able to do this on a message
by message basis, rather than by rules.
Lotus Notes had this capability that brought up a dialog
box with all the personal folders listed & let you select
one each time.
If this feature doesn't exist, does anybody know of an
add-in that will accomplish the same purpose?
You can set the save folder on a per message basis by pressin the Options...

-------------------...Same message received many times
Outlook 2002 downloads the same message hundreds of times.
Outlook is set to leave a copy of message on server, and
delete mail after 4 days, and delete when deleted from
deleted items. Any idea what can cause this?
What sort of mail account(s) do you have? Is it only one particular message
that gets downloaded repeatedly, or do you get all messages over and over?

they revert back quickly.
