Remove Duplicate Emails in Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013 & 2016 - Manual Solution

remove duplicate emails from Outlook
Duplicate emails are those emails that appears repeatedly in Outlook PST files. A lot of confusion is created among users deciding; what to do with the email consisting of duplicates or where to find and remove Outlook duplicates. You can see the below screenshot of duplicate emails in Outlook.

Reasons Behind Duplicates Emails Appearing in Outlook

Many things can cause Outlook items to duplicate, but the most common reasons are discussed below:
  • Outlook’s email related ‘Account Settings’ can cause emails to duplicate. If the ‘Leave Messages on the Server’ settings option activated it may result in multiple copies of messages being created.
  • Synchronizing Outlook with other applications/devices (Phones, PDAs, etc.)
  • Other Reasons: You may receive multiple copies of the same email from your friends or colleagues who may forward it to get your attention.
  • Sometimes even your anti-virus software may also create duplicate e-mails.

Impact of Duplicate Emails in Outlook

The following consequences may be encountered as an impact of duplicate Outlook emails:
  • Outlook will start to slow down in performance. For example, if you want to find a particular message using Instant Search feature of Outlook, but all that you see is "Searching". Moreover, you have to wait patiently while Outlook repeat the searching process through all email messages in a given folder including duplicated ones.
  • In most of the systems, Outlook starts to slow down when the mailbox crosses its size limitation, and if you do not reduce the size of your mailbox containing Outlook data, your Outlook may start hanging, freezing and not responding.

Solution to Remove Duplicates Emails From Outlook 

1) Account Settings: Sometimes by mistake, when you attempt to configure Outlook PST files more than one time it may add many accounts to MS Outlook synchronizing same PST data for those files, which create duplicates in Outlook.
Do the following steps to remove the duplicates in this case:
  • Go to File >> Info >> click on Account Settings.
  • You will see Account Settings window. There in E-mail tab, search the name of the account configured to Outlook. If same account appears more than one time, then remove extra account. To do that, drag your cursor, select the E-mail account, and click on Remove.
  • After removing the duplicate account, click Close.
2) Import/Export: Do the following steps (see the pictorial steps) to use this method:
  • Start Outlook and click on File >> select Open & Export >> click on Import/Export
  • You will see Import and Export Wizard window, select an option Import from another Program or file and click Next.
  • You will see Import a file window, select Outlook Data File (.pst) and click Next.
  • You will see Import Outlook Data File, browse the file to import and check Do not import duplicates and click Next.
  • Finally, select Outlook Data File to export complete data or you can select the particular folders of ‘Outlook Data File’ after clicking on the selected folders >> click on Finish.

3) Modifying ‘View’ settings in Outlook to remove duplicates

For Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, and Outlook 2007:
  • For Outlook 2002 and 2007, click on Current View under the View menu to change the option from folder view into a table type view.
  • For Outlook 2003, under Arrange By option on the View menu, select and click on Current View to change the option from Folder View into a Table Type View.
  • Right-click on the heading of the column (it’ll show some options) >> click on Field Chooser.
  • A list will be displayed, click on All <item name> fields.
  • Impediment the Modified field and drop it to the table heading.
  • Justify that the duplicate items have a different date from the initial set of items. If it is different, click on Modified heading so that the items are ordered using this field.
  • In the set click the first item that you wish to delete >> turn to the last item in the set that you need to delete.
  • Click on Shift+Delete key to delete it permanently.
For Outlook 2010:
  • In the Ribbon of Outlook click on View >> select Change View >> click on Preview to change the option from folder view into a table type view.
  • Right-click on the heading of the column >> click on Field Chooser.
  • From the Field Chooser, select the option All Mail fields.
  • Impediment the Modified field into the table heading.
  • Validate that the duplicate items have a different date from the initial set of items. If it is different, click on Modified heading.
  • Click the first item in the set that you need to delete >> spin to the last item in the set that you prefer to delete.
  • Press and hold the key SHIFT+DELETE and release them together to delete the duplicate items for permanent basis.
4.) Use Outlook's Clean Up Tool
Clean Up Tool is a feature of Outlook that allow you to remove duplicates from Outlook's PST file/folder. Below are steps you need to follow:
  • Open your MS Outlook >> click on Clean Up from the ribbon bar of Outlook window to expand all the options.
  • After expanding three options will be given: “Clean Up Conversation”, “Clean Up Folders”, “Clean Up Folders & Subfolders” >> click on “Clean Up Folders & Sub folders” option.
  • A box namely “Clean Up Folder” will pop up >> which will ask you whether to proceed the clean up or cancel? Click on “Clean Up Folder”.
  • Another option that a “Clean Up Folder” show is “Settings”, click on “Settings” option to manually provide the location of deleted items folder (If you are using your own custom location to save deleted folder instead of default location).
  • After clicking on “Settings” it will open “Outlook Options” window >> click on “Browse” to provide the location of PST file.
  • A pop up will appear by name Select Folder (showing all the available folders in Outlook) >> click on Deleted Items >> click OK.
  • At final, click on “Clean Up Folder”.

Failure of Manual Solution and Need of Third Party Utility

  • If you have a smaller sized PST file that consist of few hundred emails in your inbox or archive folders, then it may be possible that you never faced the problem of duplicate emails and this will hardly happen to you in the near future. However, the fact is that an average Outlook user receives around 50 to 100 messages a day.
  • Therefore, most of the users have thousands or more emails stored in various folders and users may have no idea on how many duplicated emails are actually present in their Outlook profile.
  • Sometimes, user may experience an error while using the Outlook's Clean Up Tool with the error message: "No messages were cleaned up. Only messages that satisfy your clean up settings will be moved to the trash folder."
  • In both of the above conditions, user may not be able to solve the problem manually. So, they may need to move towards a third party utility that are available on internet like Outlook Duplicate Remover that I recommend to you on the basis of my experience and usage. This utility removes duplicates from your Outlook's PST file/folder in a bulk, saving your time and is possible in few easy and simple steps (which may be helpful for the non-technical users).


To remove duplicate emails in Outlook 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003 and below versions, just follow the above steps in order to avoid redundancy issues that occur in MS Outlook. However, these manual procedures will be only applicable for smaller sized PST file.

In case, if Outlook application disconnects from the MS Exchange server, then the Offline folder file (OST) allows you to sustain the work in Microsoft Outlook. Users can send new mails, read or remove existing emails, etc. Once the connection is reestablished, whatever alteration you have done to the OST file in offline mode gets automatically synchronized with its mailbox on Exchange server.

Offline Storage Table (OST) is a duplicate copy of mailbox lying on MS Exchange Server and stored in the hard drive of your machine. In case, if Microsoft Exchange server gets damage then it will not affect to OST file which is save in HDD.

But sometimes you may get error while accessing your OST file in Microsoft Outlook. Sometimes you might also observe that few of your items are either removed or missing from OST file. It generally happens because of human mistakes or Offline Storage Table (.ost) file corruption.

Reasons for Corruption of OST File

There are various reasons for the Outlook OST file to be corrupted, and the reason may be related to software and hardware malfunctions. The corruption cases have been classified in two categories, i.e. hardware and software reasons.

Hardware Causes

  • Crashed Data Storage Device: If the Offline folder file (.ost) is saved in your Hard Disk and the data storage sector on the HDD becomes bad, then the OST file may be corrupted or damaged.
  • Problem in networking device: As we know that the OST files are synchronized with the Exchange Server through a network connection. If cables, routers, hubs or any other devices results in the failure of network, then the synchronization process fails, damaging or corrupting the OST files.
  • Power Failure Issue: If a power failure occurs when you are accessing or synchronizing the Exchange Server OST files, then in most of the cases OST files gets corrupt.

Software Reasons

  • Incorrect File System Recovery: A file system recovery can also cause Outlook OST file corruption when file system is broken and a data recovery tool is used to recover the OST files.
  • Virus and Other Malicious Software: Viruses or Infected Trojans may get corrupt or damage the Outlook OST files or make them inaccessible.
  • Synchronization Error: The synchronization failure between the offline folders and the Server may also lead to errors leaving the OST file corrupt.
  • Abnormal Microsoft Outlook Termination: You should follow the proper steps to quit from Microsoft Outlook. To do so, you should save all the changes made in the OST file before closing the Microsoft Outlook. However, if MS Outlook shut down abnormally then this may interrupt the functioning leading to corruption.

Effects of OST File Corruptions

If any of the above-mentioned issues cause the OST file on your system to be corrupted, the MS Outlook profile and Exchange account associated with that OST file will become inaccessible. If you try accessing it, the follow errors may surface:

Cannot open your default email folders. The file C:\Users\.......\outlook.ost is not an offline folder file. 

“Unable to expand the folder. The set of folders could not be opened. Errors could have been detected in the file xxxx.ost. Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool.”

“Confront a large numbers of conflict items”

Cannot open particular Outlook items when offline.

Various errors when synchronizing Exchange Server mailbox with your OST file.

Repair OST File in Microsoft Outlook 2007 & Its Limitations:

In Microsoft Outlook 2007, you can repair your OST file by following the below steps:

Path to Find SCANOST Tool:

32-bit Windows
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
64-bit Windows C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12

After finding the executable file for SCANOST.EXE, run it and perform all the steps.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the Microsoft Outlook OST Integrity checker software (SCANOST.EXE) is not installed with Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013, and 2016. So, this can be the limitation of this utility. But there is always a way to sort any issue. Let see that in the next section.

How to Repair OST File When They Are Corrupted in Outlook 2010, 2013, And 2016?

As we discussed above that Scanost.exe utility is used in earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook to verify the integrity of synchronized data. You can still run the Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) on an offline Outlook Data File (.ost) to check and repair the internal data structures, as they are similar for both data files of Outlook.

Know the location and how to run Inbox Repair Tool: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/272227

If the issue persists, then the Outlook data file might be highly corrupted or damaged. Inbox Repair Tool (SCANPST.EXE) does repair only the header section of the file. So, in that case you have to go for a third party tool as discussed above so that you can easily recover highly corrupted OST File & fix kinds of issues.

This happens as per the mailbox retention setting. Therefore, users can reconnect the deleted mailbox to the original or other account of user if mandatory. However, it should be noted that:

  • The mailboxes, which have been erased can or cannot show as a ‘disconnected mailbox’ right away, once they have been removed. It may take about few minutes to an hour to appear as a disconnected mailbox. In case, it does not happen, then it can be categorized as a different issue and users can look for other solutions.
  • It is feasible to connect a disconnected mailbox to the account of user only in case the account the mailbox is not associated with it.

How to Connect a Disconnected Exchange Mailbox

Now, to connect a disconnected Exchange mailbox users can opt for various methods such as by using Exchange Management Shell (EMS) in Exchange Server, Exchange Management Console (EMC), and also by using SysTools Exchange EDB Recovery software to recover deleted mailbox in Exchange 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003.

  • Next, select the ‘mailbox type’ in the dialog box of Connect Mailbox and then, hit on Next
  • From the dialog box Mailbox Settings in Connect Mailbox, you need to select Existing User and then click on the tab of Browse
  • Then, from Select User dialog box, select account of user to that mailbox has to be synchronized or connected. Once it is done, hit on OK
  • Finally, in the box of Alias, type the name of the mailbox. Then on Next

Now, after following these steps, users can connect those mailboxes that are disconnected.

Limitation: First, it is a time taking process. Another, thing is that it needs some technical knowledge.

Method 2: Connect Disconnected Mailbox via EMS - Now, another method for connecting mailbox, which is disconnected is with the help of EMS. For this, you can use Set-Mailbox syntax as follows:

Drawbacks: Like the above-mentioned manual solution, this approach also has some limitations associated with it. It does not assure a guaranteed solution. Moreover, this also requires knowledge on technical things.

Method 3: Using SysTools Exchange Recovery Software - This is the best way to recover deleted mailbox in Exchange Server 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003.
