Outlook 2003 duplicate email from mailbox

Q: Outlook 2003 duplicate email from mailbox

I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few computers. It appears that they get their emails from a local server which is defined as the MS Exchange Server. (Box ticked for Use Cached Exchange Mode). Outlook is then configure with my username to pull my emails of the server (i guess...). I get an email to my company email from an external source (not company email) that is CC to another company email address, and I will get a duplicate email in my inbox. If it is CC to 2 people I will get 2 duplicates (3 messages in total) This leads me to believe that outlook is not configured to pull the right emails from the server right? However, when receiving an email from an internal source (company email) and it is CC to another compnay member, I only get 1 copy. When dealing with 1 to 1 emails, everything works fine. Any ideas?

By default, when you print an email in memo style the mailbox name is printed in the upper left-hand corner. Any way to turn this off? So far I haven't been able to find this option.


A:Outlook 2003 - Print an email sans the mailbox name

Maybe this will help. Does anyone know what the section directly above the header information is called on an email printed from Outlook 2003?

On my email print outs it has my mailbox info listed and then a solid dark line/border and then the normal header info.

This is driving me mad!!!!

Thanks for any and all help....

I found a tread in this site and need some help and advice on how to make it work for a shared mailbox that about 10 peolpe will be working out of. It's been a while since the thread had any posts so I thought to create a new post and reference the code. I'm new to vba and I'm at a lost as to how I can get this code to work for my shared mailbox situation at work .

Here is the link to the tread I found with the code:

I was able to use the code and apply it to my 'ThisOutlookSession' and it works great for my personal mails . However, I want to be able to use this code on multiple folders within the shared mailbox. Also, depending on the folder that any of the 10 people working out of the shared mailbox move the email item to he/she will trigger either a "processing" email reply or "completed" email reply to the sender. And lastly, do I have to set this code up for each computer or can I just setup this code on my outlook?

We're looking to setup a 400mb limit (yes I know it...big) on users and also create an autoarchive pst on their local computer to unload email from the server older than a month. What would be the easiest way to go about both things without having to go to each machine? Would need to do the autoarchive part before we implemented the limit.

Hey all.

So a group on our team uses a shared mailbox. Often times this mailbox needs to have the auto reply function changed. We are aware that the auto reply can be changed by logging onto that shared mailbox, however it is very inconvinient as we don't want the users to have access to anything other than the ability to edit the Auto Reply, so therefore want to keep the password restricted.

Any suggestions for this?

Hi. I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, Office 2010.

We're switching to Outlook as our email client, and I currently use "The Bat!"

Within The Bat!, I can export my email as either .msg, eml or Unix Mailbox files. I can only import email from Outlook Express, Windows Mail or Eudora from within Outlook 2010. I have a Windows 7 64 bit system, so I can't even load Windows Mail/Outlook Express on my machine. I couldn't import any of the .eml, .msg or Unix Mailbox files into Windows Live Mail.

I have two questions.

1) How can I accomplish my goal of migrating my email messages from The Bat! into Outlook 2010. I can open each of the exported mail messages and from within there "copy to a folder." But I don't want to do that 2,000 times.

2) Also, what has Microsoft made this so difficult? This is such a hassle that I would not use Outlook if I didn't have too. I'm not going to buy a third party application that will migrate mail for me. What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance,

This is not a big problem and it is not causing any problems it is just annoying. If someone can please take a minute and tell me how I can resolve this issue it would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know of a quick way to get rid of duplicate contacts in Outlook?
(i.e 3 of each) I know I could use View | Phone list and manually delete, but wondering of there is a quick way? Sort/filter??


A:Duplicate Contacts in Outlook (2003)

Hi there,

You should be able to use some code like this ...
Sub DeleteDups_Contacts()

Dim MyColl As Object
Dim ct As MAPIFolder, ci As ContactItem
Dim ns As NameSpace
Dim strFirst As String
Dim strTmp As String

Set MyColl = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
Set ns = ThisOutlookSession.Session
Set ct = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

On Error Resume Next
For Each ci In ct.Items
If Not (MyColl.Exists(ci.FullName)) Then
MyColl.Add ci.FullName, "1"
strTmp = strTmp & ci.FullName & vbNewLine
' ci.Delete
End If

MsgBox "Deleted:" & vbNewLine & Trim(strTmp)
Set MyColl = Nothing

End Sub
To install, hit Alt + F11 | Insert | Module, paste on right. Put cursor in routine, press F5. Note I commented out the delete line, I'd run it once with it, then if you're sure the message is correct, uncomment the line (take out the ' sign) and run it.

Someone sent me an email with jpg attachments, let's say pic1.jpg, size 1MB. When I received it, I have 2 jpgs - pic1.jpg 1MB (of course), and another one with the same name but much smaller size pic1.jpg, 50KB. Sender told me that he only sent 1 jpg file.

Does anyone know why? and is there anything I can do to stop the smaller one come?


A:duplicate JPG attachments in Outlook 2003

The sender probably has a setting in their end to "break apart" attachments over s certain size (possibly 1 MB by the sound of it). So the file gets sent as multiples of that size, plus whats left over (20 kB in your case).

When any attachment is emailed, the file size is quite a lot larger in transit due to the transport method and HTML encoding (email systems were never originally designed for attachments so it is quite inefficient at doing it)

The sender needs to check out their settings to stop the splitting. The settings will be wholly dependent on what email client they use.

Hi Guys

We have a problem at the moment where some users send out an email with upto 14 attachments on it, these could be word docs, PDFs or V Cards. They check the attachments before they send the message and it all loks ok, but when they recieve it at the other end the attachments end up being a duplicate of the first attachment attached to the email but has kept its original names. When the sender looks in there sent items the email in there is also corrupt.

Another way of describing it could be....

"Just lately I started having the following problem. If I am sending more than one attachment of the same file type in an email the two attachments end up being the same even though the file name remains different. If I was to send two .jpg files named cat & dog (A picture of a cat and a dog) when you received the email from me the file names would still be cat & dog but the contents would be the same (Two pictures of the dog). Any help is appreciated as I am stumped."

We are using outlook 2003, any help would be fantastic as I am a bit stuck

I have seen alot of threads on this but I still needed some clarification if possible. We have a computer running Windows XP that we did a reinstall of windows. After we did that a duplicate set of personal folders showed up in outlook. Now when we receive email and move to any folder it is duplicated in the second set of folders. Looks to be identical. So both sets of personal folders have emails in them. There is only one .pst file that is very large 4gb. Too large I know and we need to pair it down but my question - is one of the reasons it is so large is because it has 2 sets of all the folders with emails in them? I was going to try to close one set of the personal folders but both of the "close folder" options are greyed out on the menu. Can we delete one set of the personal folders without losing anything in the other set if it seems that everything is going into both identically?

Hey ho...

I have a weird problem - or at least I think it is!

After I launch Outlook 2003, and use it for a few minutes a duplicate set of all my folders is created under "Archive Folders". The original set of folders remains under Personal Folders. If I exit Outlook and re-launch sometimes these folders remain, but sometimes after I exit then try to relaunch I get an "Operation failed" message. After clicking OK on that message, and try to relaunch I get the same "Operation failed" message; after clicking OK on that and relaunching I can access Outlook and the duplicate folders have disappeared, but they reappear very quickly.

Anyone a) know what is happening and b) how to fix the problem?

Generally Outlook IMHO sucks for these very reasons outlook is fine until you actually do more than 10 messages a day in it and want to actually try to use it to sort. But most businesses use it so most of us use it. Some of us never have problems with it, good for you guys, some of us have nothing but problems with it. NEVER EVER install Business Contact Manager! It uses a seperate database entirely and often loses it's mapping because from what I have seen it uses a service in your system that can get confused.

I would think that somehow your system has two databases it's reading and somehow at some point when you started an archive it creating the account again as... Read more

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?

This appears to be a common problem, with many solutions, though I have yet to find one that works for me. When using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 set to be the email editor, Word opens and works fine to CREATE a new email. However, when trying to REPLY TO or FORWARD an email, I get the error message "Microsoft Word is set to be your email editor. However, Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The outlook email editor will be used instead...," and when I click OK to that message the native Outlook email editor opens. Word 2003 worked fine with Outlook 2003 replying to or forwarding emails till this morning, but the behavior described above now applies. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10. I have tried to both "repair" and "reinstall" the 2003 Office 2003 suite, both to no avail. Would appreciate a much needed solution to this puzzle.
