So I just finished exporting users from Exchange to Kerio and am setting up Kerio. Everything's going fine until I noticed that one user has about 25,000 items in his calendar. Something happened to the original Exchange calendar where for the years 2006 and 2007 some events got duplicated many, many times - couple hundred each, easy.

What's the fastest way I can remove these duplicates from Kerio? I've tried iCal Cleaner but it seems to be taking a really, REALLY long time to do anything. Is it safe to delete items directly from the Kerio store, or is there another solution out there that could help in my quite annoying problem?

I'd try iCal Dupe Deleter.

http://www.nhoj.co.uk/icaldupedeleter/ical_dupe_deleter_1_1_ 0.dmg

I used it recently and it worked pretty quickly, but I only had a couple thousand events to scan.

Cheers,
Jon

Thanks Jon! Worked much faster than iCal Cleaner - much appreciated.

Actually it didn't work and I'm a bit concerned as to why it didn't work. It searched, deleted the duplicates just fine, but the duplicates were NOT deleted from the server, even though the iCal from which I removed them appears to be syncing just fine. I can even create items on the webmail or on another client and they show up in my deleted duplicate calendar just fine, but those deleted items were not deleted from the server. I'm worried as to what this disconnect is - if everything is running off the same server, why is it not actually matching up?

If I'm not mistaken, iCal Dupe Deleter works only on a "local" calendar, so you'll need to export the clean calendar, delete the events (or more likely the whole calendar) from the server, create a new calendar, if you deleted the server calendar, and import from the clean export.

Let me know if that works out.

Cheers,
Jon

That's what I ended up doing after a call to Kerio support - the deleter deleted the items from the kerio ical calendar I was working off of, but those changes were not reflected to the server even though it was still syncing. Made it local and reimported to Kerio worked just fine.
