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:

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

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

Can this be done? Thanks in advance!

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.

O/S -: Windows XP SP3

Application -: Outlook 2003 11.8206.8202 SP3

Email Server Type -: IMAP

Background -: Recently re-installed MS Office 2003, due to Word/Exel/Outlook crashing with a 0xc00000005 exception (turned out it was a Network Printer problem which I've now resolved)

Current Problem -: Outlook is downloading TWO IDENTICAL COPY emails, and If I delete or send to Junk Folder one copy, it deletes/moves the other copy!

If I view my emails using my Web Browser based email client, I only see ONE copy of the email (as it should be)

A couple of things I've noticed about Outlook behaving differently is -:
a) The Send/Receive progress % does'nt show anymore

b) If I navigate on Outlook to Tools, Option, Mail Setup - when I select the Send/Receive Options, nothing happens (there are no further options). the same is true if I try to access the Send/Receive Options via the toolbar

c) The 1st of the duplicate emails is blank with the following header -: "This is a message header. The Full Item has not been downloaded", the 2nd duplicate email has the relevant email information

Any ideas?

I am using an Excel worksheet with several thousand records listed. On a daily basis, I get an updated list, but I need to keep hold of some of the 'old' records.
At present I'm copying the new list, adding it to the end of my existing list and then filtering it so that only unique records are visible.
Obviously, this means the list is ever-increasing with many duplicated records (hidden or otherwise).
Is there a way to simply delete the duplicate records (so I can just keep one record of each) rather than hide them?

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.

Thanks before hand.

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.

I am running Outlook 2013 and my email account is a through Yahoo. Often, I will begin receiving duplicates of emails that I have received. I have attempted to look for a pattern (how far back do the duplicates go..etc) and have found no pattern. I can often go weeks between occurrences or the issue can linger for weeks. I have tried multiple solutions but none have worked.... Any clue as to what may be happening?

A:Duplicate Emails

Hi Paulmosh, The reason you may receive duplicate emails is that improper synchronization has occurred from mobile devices or laptops. Do you have more than one device with Outlook? If so the device may be duplicating the emails to obtain copies and unknowingly sending it to other devices when they already have a copy and synchronization has already occured. Another way to explain is that if you have more than one device, they may all attempt to sync your emails at the same time which can result in duplicate emails.

Please refer to the link below for more information about email duplication and why it happens and how to prevent it.

I keep receiving notifications that my IMAP mail server is full and need to clean it up by deleting older emails.

I mainly use outlook 2007 to manage my 4 email accounts in 4 seperate folders and so I made .pst backup of all my email accounts but when I delete them from my IMAP and restore the back up there appear again in my IMAP server.

I have tried to make different (offline) folders but it seems I cannot restore a back up in to this. I also tried archiving my folders but since I use 4 different email accounts, the archive keeps overwriting the folders with the last email account selected.

All I want is: place my back up emails in a seperate (offline) folder per account so I can at least access my old emails in Outlook after I have deleted them from my imap server (I understand and accept that than I can only read those emails from my harddrive and not any more on my tablet or phone, but at leas I have one place where I can find them...).

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!
