Remove Duplicate Items from Outlook Folders

 

If you are using Outlook 2010, probably you might have duplicate contacts, mails and other folders if you have merged contacts from other services. Outlook Duplicate Items Remover (ODIR) enables you to find and remove duplicate emails, contacts, tasks, notes and appointments in your Outlook easily. The freeware app for Windows is very useful in finding the duplicate items inside your Outlook folders. When you select a folder for scanning duplicate items, the add-in scan based on various parameters including date, message ID, sender and other details.

Once the scanning is completed, it moves the items to a ODIR subfolder from where they can be checked and optionally deleted. ODIR recognizes an item as a duplicate if all of the following properties match those of another item in the same folder:

  • Contact items:
    first name, last name, company name and email address
  • Appointment items:
    subject, location, start date and end date
  • Task items:
    subject, start date, due date and status
  • Note items:
    contents of the note (Body property) and color
  • E-mail or Post items:
    • Received emails: the internet message ID (this is a unique identifier for each email received)
    • Sent emails: email subject and the time the email is sent (PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME)
    • Unsent emails: email subject only

ODIR runs in all Outlook versions starting from Outlook 2000 but only supports 32 bit version of Outlook.

ODIR is a nice app to find duplicates, but no support for 64 bit versions is definitely a drawback.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
