About Outlook Cleaner

Outlook Cleaner is a program for your Windows Mobile 5.0+ phone that helps you remove duplicate and redundant contacts, appointments, and tasks.

Ever get a new phone, sync it to your Exchange account, and end up with hundreds of duplicate items?

Accidentally create a duplicate item but with different information, and then need to figure out which one to keep and which one to delete?

Then this program is for you!

Requirements
Windows Mobile 5.0+
.NET Compact Framework 2.0+

Version
0.991beta, 21 August 2009 - minor bugfixes
0.99beta, 02 July 2009 - refined Appointment/Task algorithms, merge editor
0.98beta, 25 June 2009 - added Appointment, Task cleaning
0.971, 12 June 2009 - with extra debug error messages
0.97, 12 June 2009 - extended from Contact Cleaner
0.96, 08 June 2009 - bugfix
0.95, 03 June 2009 - initial public release

0.99 Features
  • Cleaning
    • Scans Contacts, Appointments, Tasks
    • Detection of exact duplicates
    • Detection of near duplicates (same identifier but different properties values)
    • Keep / Merge / Delete tool

How it works
Cleaning works like this:
1) Scan the Outlook database, looking for duplicate items.
2) Exact duplicates are deleted.
3) Near-duplicates are displayed for manual merging/removal.
4) You go through the sets of near-duplicates, where you can see all the values which are different, and choose to keep, delete, or merge items.

Contacts with the same "FileAs" property are compared against each other, except for the ItemId and Picture properties.
Appointments with the same "Subject" and similar start/end times are compared against each other.
Tasks with the same "Subject" and similar start/end dates are compared against each other.

Use at your own risk, i'm not responsible, etc. etc.

Registration
Outlook Cleaner is currently free.

More information can be found at www.philchuang.com

Upcoming Features
  • Keep / Merge / Delete tool
    • Display similar properties, not just the different properties.
  • Contact cleaning
    • Smarter comparison of all fields (ie "Phil" and "Philip" with the same phone number)
  • Fix start menu icon

Thanks trying now, I'm sure I have quite a few to delete. I think this would be better appreciated over in development and hacking.

This is brilliant my friend!

I will be trying it in a while, and post some feedbacks...
Perhaps an Appointments/Calendar/Tasks Cleaner as well in the future versions?
Just a thought as it seems that there are more duplicate appointments than contacts for my case...

btw, Thanks
