Email Address Cleansing in Outlook 2003

What a nightmare. I have to keep maintain 10000 inbox items and 10000 sent items for audit and legal reasons. and growing every day

Lets say I have emails from and to Fred Bloggs. I will have occurrences of all of the following

Fred Bloggs
Bloggs, Fred
'Fred Bloggs'
'Bloggs, Fred'
fbloggs@hotmail.com
Fred Bloggs (fbloggs@hotmail.com)

and so on and so forth.

I need a program that can run through all the emails in each folder and cleanse each address into just Fred Bloggs.

I also need to configure outlook so it uses a consistent format in future. Although I suppose I could rerun the cleanse program periodically.

Any ideas ?
thanks

When you say 'cleanse' , do you mean find any occurance of that and replace with 'Fred Bloggs'?

I'd like to read through each email, take each address, normalise it from one of the many possible formats, and rewrite that email record with the corrected normalised address.
