Quick way to delete duplicate emails?

Q: Quick way to delete duplicate emails?

Hi all, sorry if this is not in the right category (it kind of mixes email and applications).

I work IT for a local school and we're moving everyone's email from Rackspace email to Gmail. The way we have everyone copying old emails over is to have them setup both accounts in Apple's Mail 6.5 program (all the teachers have Macbooks) and drag and drop from one account to the other.

Here's my concern, we have several teachers who've wound up with duplicate emails in their new Gmail inboxes. Is there a quick way to get rid of the duplicates without manually having to go through each email. Is there some trick on Gmail or a usable script on Mail 6.5 (all laptops on Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard) that will help out? Or perhaps some third party program or service? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I have a customer who is receiving duplicate emails because their name is in the To line and they are also included in an AD group in the Cc line. We are in the process of migrating from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2010 and I do not yet have access to Outlook (Exchange) to try a hands-on approach to test for the customer, but I need a rule to delete (or move) the duplicate emails the customer is receiving, so he is only left working with one copy of the email.

So, I guess it needs to be something to the effect of:

Condition:
where my name is in the To or Cc box
AND
where my name is included in the AD group XYZ

Action:
Delete (or Move) the message to the Trash (or specified folder)

Can this be done? Thanks in advance!

Are you sure that the emails sent from those folders are not being "split" to accommodate the larger attachment size?

Outlook Express has this setting to "break apart" larger attachments, they get recombined at the other end.

A:Duplicate emails

Hello Heather, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Double check in Tools and Accounts in Windows Mail to see if you may have a duplicate account with the same email address. If you do, then you can just delete the duplicate to stop the messages from duplicating.

Hope this helps,

A:Duplicate emails

Welcome to TSG!
From what I have read on this proble there are two files within outlook express if corrupt could be causing this to happen, the outbox.dbx or the Pop3uidl.dbx which keeps track of e-mail. What you can do is delete the outbox.dbx file first in this manner.
1) Close OE and click start\find-search
2) Type *.dbx in files and folders window.
3) When search lists items in right pane locate your outbox.dbx folder, (one that should be associated with your identity name in the path.
4) Highlight and delete it.
5) restart OE which will find the outbox missing and create another one.

See if that corrects the problem.

If not then follow same process for Pop3uidl.dbx file and see if that corrects it.

A:Duplicate emails

This could occur if the login details in the account settings for the two accounts have been setup the same. You need to make sure you use the appropriate login details for each separate account. Does an email sent to the other address also appear in both? If so this would suggest you have a "catch-all" email address set up for your accounts.

Sure hope there's someone there to help! Ever since I checked the box in IncrediMail to leave a copy of the messages on the server in order to be able to receive them on my iPhone, I have been getting duplicate incoming emails in my IncrediMail inbox! It's driving me crazy! If I uncheck the box, I do not get duplicate emails, but I also do not receive any emails on my iPhone. There has to be a way to fix this somehow. IncrediMail technical support people are retarded and offer no help whatsoever (if they even respond to your help request at all!).

As far as I am aware, I have configured both my Yahoo! and Gmail accounts correctly (they have both been working fine for a few years now) and the only change I have made is checking that %*$^ box so I could get messages on my iPhone.

My wife has a Hotmail account, and she paid for the service with Hotmail that allows her to get her Hotmail on her Blackberry (Tmobile is the provider, if that matters). I am finding out from her what application she uses to read her Hotmail on her Blackberry (I am guessing Outlook Express? But maybe not).

The problem is this. She gets emails from a number of people, including me. However, from time to time she will get duplicate emails from me on her blackberry, when I've only sent the message once. I've asked her if she gets the same duplicate messages on Hotmail on the PC - I am waiting to hear back from her. Sometimes she gets one extra copy, sometimes two copies, and sometimes it is three or more. But I am the only person she gets multiple copies of emails from. I was sending them from my work email address. Then I changed to my Gmail, but she is still getting duplicate emails on occassion, but only from me. And in fact, it seems like it may be happening more frequently since I moved to Gmail. And it doesn't seem to matter whether I send the messages from the PC or my work's iPhone.

On one hand, I think the issue has to be on her end and is a result of some link between her Blackberry and Hotmail account. On the other hand, why am I the only person she is having the duplicate email issue with.

And ideas?

I use outlook 2010 for my email at home. I notice that quite often when I download my email I get duplicates and sometimes triplicates of the same messages. Trying to figure out why that is.
I do have my email set up on both my phone and my kindle fire as well. I almost never access it on my phone as I always had trouble getting the body of messages on it for some reason. I occasionally access it on my Kindle. I am wondering if this has to do with one or both of them. I haven't been able to discern a pattern. I am pretty sure in the cases of the phone and kindle I have set the messages not to be removed from the server, so that I will get them on my computer. But can't imagine why that would mean I would receive them multiple times. And it is not consistent. Not every message is repeated all the time.

It hasn't added any other duplicates for a few weeks so prob has stopped but now I need to delete them!
I know that I can follow the normal deleting process, highlight all the duplicates and the un-highlight one copy to keep but I am going to be doing that forever, and when I have done this I keep getting the error 'message could not be deleted' but with so many highlighted to delete I have to go through them all one by one to find the problem message!
I have found available software but not for using with Windows live mail, I am more than happy to buy something if needs be but I just need to get rid of these messages!
It doesn't help that I am in a rush, a recent crash on my laptop was apparently caused by malware and I have been instructed to complete a full recovery! I can't backup 43000+ emails, I certainly don't want to import them all back again after the recovery!
Please, please, if someone can kindly share any pearls of wisdom with me, it would be so very much appreciated. I may be a 'dizzy blonde' at the moment, but I am turning in to a 'completely crazy' one if I have to keep trying to delete them the old 'delete' way!

When I login or have been away from my pc for awhile, the server sends emails that are already in my inbox - but not all emails-just some!! Other times it will send over all of the emails - as many as 300!!! (I use my email for business and sometimes receive as many as 75 daily). I am on Yahoo/ATT & T. Also there is always a yellow triangle at the right lower corner that says "send/receive error". My pc "guru" can't fix the problem, and when I called Microsoft, I was transferred to several "techs" and hours later, some jerk tried to sell me something. I just hung up in utter frustration!!

XP pro SP3
Outlook 2003 SP3

Hi,

I'm having the problem where outlook 2003 (SP3) downloads the same emails more than once from my POP3 server. I have read countless forums on this and still haven't found a solution.

My situation is a little different from the others I've read but the problem it seems is the same. My laptop hard drive died recently and so I have installed a new one and restored my system from a ghost image. I have then used my .pst file from before the disk died, so I've kept all my contacts, calendar and mail, etc.

When I get outlook to download messages, I get duplicates of al my messages. I have about 20 email accounts with literally thousands of individual emails coming in. It seems if I delete them they don't come back again. I have outlook set to leave a copy on the server because I need to access my email from other locations. It is also set to delete when they are deleted from deleted items.

I've looked at my webmail and even when the mail marked as read, outlook still downloads the messages. Interestingly it didn't download old messages for my gmail account using POP3. But this is the only exception.

I read a microsoft KB article that said this issue was resolved in a hotfix that came out before SP2. I've got SP3 and it doesn't seem to be fixed.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to be deleting emails one by one again.

Thanks for all our help,

Nick

Hi,

I recently upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2007 under XP SP2. I have three accounts on the same POP3 server. After installation, it threw errors importing some of my rules and disabled the rest. Some of these rules (now bad) were for moving emails arriving from each account and moving them to the appropriate folder. Since these rules wouldn't import properly (and were disabled) it put all new messages in the same folder. OK, easy enough to fix.

However, whenever I logged on it would also download duplicates of all my messages. Over 5000 messages. Sometimes triplicates. I spent around a day paintsakingly removing these. It's difficult because if I remove the wrong one, it deletes the original from my POP server. In other words, if a particular message has two or three dupes, only ONE of them is truly associated with the original (on server) and therefore cannot be deleted locally. I can however safely delete the other local copies (the original remains on the server). The problem it can be impossible to tell which copy points to the original and which doesn't. It's necessary to archive all messages on my POP server for accessing on other systems so deleting these isn't an option.

I then deleted the old rules and added new rules for putting the messages from each account into their proper folders. I immediately discovered what appears to be a new bug in 2007. Of the three accounts, when I make a rule to move messages received from account#3 and hit... Read more

I've had this problem for years. My Windows Live Mail 2012 frequently (not always) downloads duplicates of every new email. The email protocol is POP3. Someone suggested I should use IMAP. I tried it. . . but, at least with Comcast's system, IMAP duplicates what's on the server. . . which can go back several years of emails. . . which I DO NOT want to retain. Comcast provides no option to delete emails older that X days, so when I switched to IMAP, every g.d. email I've received in the last 3 years downloaded to my Inbox. So I went back to POP3.

So why do I get duplicates?

A:OUTLOOK EXPRESS -getting DOUBLE/Duplicate Emails --help

I just foung this info on the net by doign a search, and it worked... in case this helps anyone else out there. I disabled checking for new messages automaticaly.

If a POP3 mail account is configured to leave a copy of messages on the server (Tools, Accounts, [the account], Properties, Advanced), OE downloads the same messages during a send or receive session. Duplicate message will also be downloaded which can occur if the file Pop3uidl.dbx is corrupted. This file keeps track of which messages on the server have already been downloaded and should therefore be skipped on subsequent downloads, [Q216366] and [Q314578].

a. Deleting the file Pop3uidl.dbx and subsequently checking for mail creates a new rendition that should work properly.

Note: If duplicate messages are seen on a Hotmail or IMAP account, this solution will not work because those types of accounts do not use the file Pop3uidl.dbx

b. The anomaly happens in Hotmail or IMAP accounts if the default mail account and OE is configured to both open directly to the Inbox (which downloads headers automatically) and check for new messages when starting (which also downloads headers automatically).

c. To stop the duplicates, simply choose one option or the other, but not both. Remove the check mark for When starting, go directly to my 'Inbox' folder" or the check mark for Send and receive messages at startup [Tools, Options].

Note: If duplicates are already showing, click Tools, Synchronize Account or Synch... Read more

I'm not sure if this is a Windows problem (I have Win 7) or an email handler issue. My dh has XP, we're on a network and I'm the only one with this problem.

I constantly get duplicate emails. It doesn't matter if I leave them on the server and have them deleted in a few days, or if I don't leave them on the server and they're deleted immediately, or whether I deleted them and have read or not read them or emptied my deleted email folder. Nothing matters. I get duplicate emails and they're in quotes.... sometimes. And not all emails are duplicated. Somes days they are some days they aren't. Some days it's all of them in the am some days it's a couple of what I already received.

I can't delete these unless I drag and drop to the deleted folder. Also, the duplicates don't open a second time, it just shows an error, hence I drag and drop. This has gone on since I got Windows 7 in Aug. I had an HP laptop that had Vista that crashed in July and just started to have the problem there. But my dh and I are on the same network and I'm the only one this happens too.

I'm about ready to throw it out the window. Any ideas? I have fixed/changed upteen settings and nothing works.

Ok, I know why I am having a problem, but I don't know how to prevent it. I have a dual boot system with Vista32 and Vista 64. Both OS are on seperate partitions. I run Outlook 2007 on both OS installs and I only use pop3 mail. I have both installs of Outlook pointed to the same .pst file on a completely seperate drive. Everything works fine except I am getting duplicate emails because one Outlook doesn't know that the email has already been downloaded.

So, I am sharing the pst file, and I'd also like to share whatever file it is that tells Outlook which emails were already downloaded. Does this make sense? I am confusing myself just typing it.

I though about having Outlook remove the files from the pop server once downloaded, but I need them to be there for remote purposes.

Any thoughts? Hopefully somebody can relate.
