OL Address Book, Deleting Duplicates..
Posted on 2001-06-13
Hey there, Folks.. This is about Outlook 2000, SP2.
I have an office full of folks that had setup "Show this folder as an e-mail address book" for about a half-dozen (exchange) public folders full of contacts. Approx. 100 workstations.
Alas, the public folders were accidentally deleted, then recovered from backup (re-imported via .PST).
My problem is: Outlook clients now show duplicates in the address book. There were 6 folders setup, now I see 18. Three instances of each folder, and only one of each three works. Needless to say, my users are a little confused by this, and so am I.
Is there any way to automatically make Outlook remove the address lists/folders that don't work..? I get a generic "The address list could not be displayed.. " error message.
