I personally suggest you to go to this blog as it contains good information which worth for you. It describes complete steps to remove duplicates emails from Outlook 2016.
Apart from there are multiple solutions are available in the online market. You can also go with Revove PST Duplicate Remover Software for quick results. But I advise you to go with the manual solution first. If it fails then only you can opt for the third-party solution.

I hope this will help you.
