    I am using Microsoft Entourage as my email application and I seem to be generating major duplicates especially on recurring calendar items.

    Mobileme support say it is an entourage issue and that I should contact microsoft

    Does anyone know how to cure this?

    Also does anyone know how to remove these duplicates quickly as it is pretty much impossible for me to delete them one by one as each particular event is racking up hundreds now

    Thanks in advance

    I had terrible duplication problems with Entourage. So much so I abandoned and I just use the built in Apple apps now. To be honest, I prefer them now I've got used to them (I think it was my work windoze/outlook based brain that thought I'd prefer Entourage!)

    However, to answer your questions, I seem to recall updating Entourage to the latest service pack stopped Calendar duplication but didn't stop the duplication of Address Book entries.

    Might be worth a try until someone with a bigger and better brain than mine comes along.

    I have the same thing happening to me, except Im not using Entourage. Re-syncing does not fix it. MC

    I had the same problem before, contacts went from 700ish to 5000!

    Import your contacts to Address then "Look for Duplicates" under "Card".

    I did lose some contacts/numbers though. But still, better than spending hours manually deleting contacts.


    PS. no idea how to delete duplicates from the calendar, sorry!
