Oh, Dear!

While showing my Rouzell.com website to a new prospect, I clicked on the Blog link and enjoyed the embarrassing moment of, “Oh, Dear!” It has been some time since I posted anything new. You may be saying, “Thank you, Captain Obvious.” And, I deserve that, too.

That is not what drew me back to post, though. What did is the realization that whenever I find something that works for me, I feel an obligation to share it with my people. That’s you, if you are reading this!

The title of this entry came from my search results for a tool to remove duplicate items from Outlook (that’s part of Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus – if you really must know). You’d think they would have an acronym for that by now. Anyhow, I found a tool called ODIR. In my mind, pronounced; “Oh Dear!” That acronym stands for – you might have guessed – Outlook Duplicate Items Remover.

I would take the time to go through the set up and operation of this utility, but their help file is adequate and should fill that need. One caveat is that they have not updated their instructions to account for the change from menus to the ribbon implemented in the 201o version of Outlook. So, I’ll provide this one clue: Add-ins tab is where you’ll find the new tool. From there, it’s pretty easy to see what you can do.

If you need more help with any or all of this, click back over to Rouzell.com or the new MouseHelp.com for my contact information and call or write. I’ll talk to you then, or see you soon, whichever is most appropriate to your need.
