Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.

This applet removes duplicate entries from a personal address book. Duplicates can be defined as address book entries in the same address book whichhave either the same display name, or the same email address.

When a duplicate is detected, it is removed from the selected addressbook and moved to a dynamically created address book for review. This addressbook will have the same name as the original book with the words ' - Backup'appended.

Once you are satisfied the address book entries removed are no longerrequired you can manually delete the backup book.

If you manually delete a GroupWise address book before running thisapplet, due to a GroupWise client refresh issue, the list of available addressbooks shown may not be accurate. If you delete an address book prior to runningthe applet, to ensure only valid books are shown, we suggest that you re-startGroupWise.
