SimpleSYN cannot only perfectly synchronize Outlook® but offers additional powerful features. These can be found in the SimpleSYN menu which is directly integrated into Outlook® in the submenu “Tools” or respectively in the SimpleSYN-ribbon in Outlook® 2010.

Repair Links

Outlook® items (such as appointments, e-mails, journal entries, etc.) allow the creation of links to contacts. These links contain an unambiguous ID which can, i.e. after being exported and then imported into another Outlook® data file, refer to old Outlook® items and therefore be invalid. This feature allows automatic repairs of such links. SimpleSYN tries to recover the linked contacts in the Outlook® address book. If a linked contact has been found SimpleSYN restores the link.

Repair Distributions List

Distributions lists in Outlook® can contain links to contacts. These links contain an unambiguous ID which can, after being exporting and importing the list, refer no longer to correct contacts and be therefore invalid. This feature allows automatic repairs of such links. SimpleSYN tries to recover the linked contacts in the Outlook® address book. If a linked contact has been found SimpleSYN restores the link.

This feature is only active if a distribution list is selected.

Restore deleted objects

Allows to restore items and folder deleted by SimpleSYN during the synchronization. Note that it is not possible to restore items deleted completely.

Find duplicates

The SimpleSYN duplicate finder provides an easy and fast method to find and delete Outlook® duplicates. The duplicate finder searches automatically the currently selected Outlook® folder and shows all found duplicates. The duplicates can then be moved into a folder of your choice or deleted completely.

The duplicate finder does not only find Outlook duplicates, but this tool can also find similar or copied items.

Make a backup of your Outlook® data before completely deleting duplicates.
