Frequent mail merging can result in multiple entries for a single contact in your address book. This simple add-on removes the duplicates--and the headaches they can cause--with just a single click.
1-Click Duplicate Delete for Outlook is an add-on for Microsoft's popular e-mail client. It loads an easy-to-spot button onto the toolbar for the client's interface. This little app performed nicely in our tests. It quickly scanned our contacts and removed multiple entries, prompting us with the results of its search. Removing the duplicates was a snap. The lack of a Help file or explanation for the add-on's functionality was a bit troubling, but the tests ran well, and we didn't seem to lose any contacts we wanted to hang on to.
If you frequently perform mail merges using Outlook, you'll want to take a look at this little tool.
1-Click Duplicate Delete will get rid of all your duplicate e-mails (also tasks, notes, calendar entries) and merge contacts. And all this with just one mouse click and within seconds. You can use an automatic mode and an advanced mode (requiring your confirmations).
What's new in this version:
Version 4.09 improves the recognition of duplicate emails or calendar items.
Version: 1-Click Duplicate Delete for Outlook 3.12
Makes eliminating duplicates so easy. No guess work, and lots of options if you want to use the advanced features, which I have never needed, because the software is so easy to use. Support is very fast and very professional.
None that I can think of
I've been using different versions of this product since 2008, and it has been a great product, and the support is superb. It sure makes finding duplicates that get created during sync errors a lot easier than searching for them one by one, and deleting them one by one. My Palm based smartphone used to create duplicates all the time, and this software has been a lifesaver!
Version: 1-Click Duplicate Delete for Outlook 3.08
This program does in fact delete most of the duplicates I have encountered.
On those occasions that it has not, the owner of the company worked very hard over a period of days to make adjustments to my version that would work nearly every time.
There are always going to be some duplicate emails that for one reason or another aren't able to be eliminated by this program. I attribute that not to any problems with the program, but rather to the "nature of the beast", as it were.
This user has found that 1-Click works almost always. It is important to remember that you have to be in the folder that the email is delivered to (I found this out by trial and error). In other words, if you have dupes showing up in "Unread Mail", 1-Click does not work then. You must go to the actual folder that the email is in for 1-Click to work. I don't remember being told about this, so they should make sure the user understands that.
Meanwhile, as I have stated, it has been working almost always. It is fun to watch the little "goldfish" appear in the fishbowl, too! Those are the dupes.
As I also said, when I have had problems, Thomas, the owner reponds quickly and really devotes a lot of time and effort to solving the problem to the best of his ability. It really is customer service to be emulated!
Version: 1-Click Duplicate Delete for Outlook 3.06
It is simple and clean. You simply launch 1-Click from within Outlook for any folder, and all the duplicates are identified and removed. This works for the Inbox, Calendar, Sent Items and Contacts.
I'm hard-pressed to find anything negative.
I'm an IT Professional. In the course of repairing computers, I often have to re-install Outlook and re-import all mail items; this invariably invites mail duplicates in all folders; this product, 1-Click Duplicate Delete, now at version 3.08, makes child's play of removing duplicated items. The tech support has proven to be wonderful. I'm delighted with this product.
