Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Mailbox Cleanup, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
- The Clean Up feature is like a prescient form of Ignore.…Rather than directing Outlook to remove…a certain conversation, we're giving Outlook…a little more running room and saying,…"Go check and see, using the tracking information…that's built into e-mail, if there are messages…that are really redundant."…A message, for example, where somebody's saying,…"I agree with this," and somebody else says, "Me too."…Or parallel messages that are sent…at the same time with similar content.…Outlook looks at them and then,…if they exist, it removes them.…
I have a set of messages in one conversation…and we're going to check this and see if we can clean it up.…I'll go to Clean Up > Clean Up Conversation.…A dialogue box opens that reminds me where things are going.…I click Clean Up.…It says it'll apply to all items in…the selected conversation, OK.…At least one of the messages in this conversation…has now been moved to Deleted Items.…We go look, we'll find it there, right here.…To use Clean Up Conversation by conversation…
