I am hoping someone can assist.  I would like to remove duplicate email messages from Outlook 2003 / 2007 client in an Exchange 2003 Server / AD environment.  

I know there is a way, but don't recall how to remove duplicate email messages using Outlook client.

Thank you in advance.

personally I use mapilab's outlook delete duplicate email remover. Are these duplicates from an import operation or faulty rules settings

I am not sure.  A user was trying to make copies of her email messages, instead of making an archive.pst and next thing I know she is contacting me about having duplicates.

Thanks for all the great help.

Yes, I had the user remove them manually.

Thanks for the info though.  I will sure to keep these plug-ins in mind the next time.
