I am working with Entourage 2004 - 11.2.1.
When accessing an Exchange mail server with IMAP, very often messages in the Inbox folder are “duplicated” (they appear exactly the same twice or three times) until I recreate/repair the message list (right-clicking the “Inbox” icon and selecting Alt + Command + L, which is different from simply updating the list with command + L). This command does not have its own menu and can only be seen with right-clicking the folder.
This collect and recreate the updated and “clean” list which last for a while until new apparently duplicated messages appear, until another cleaning.
I was wondering if there is a way to write an Applescript to be added and scheduled every x minutes.
Unfortunately I have no experience in scripting Entourage, although I would know the steps required:
A - select “Inbox” folder (little icon) in the left column (where all the folders are)
B - perform " Alt + Command + L
Many thanks for your kind attention!
