SQL for Count of duplicate values Multiple columns

declare @YourTable table (id int, name varchar(10), email varchar(50))

INSERT @YourTable VALUES (1,'John','John-email')
INSERT @YourTable VALUES (2,'John','John-email')
INSERT @YourTable VALUES (3,'fred','John-email')
INSERT @YourTable VALUES (4,'fred','fred-email')
INSERT @YourTable VALUES (5,'sam','sam-email')
INSERT @YourTable VALUES (6,'sam','sam-email')

SELECT
    name,email, COUNT(*) AS CountOf
    FROM @YourTable
    GROUP BY name,email
    HAVING COUNT(*)>1

OUTPUT:

name       email       CountOf
---------- ----------- -----------
John       John-email  2
sam        sam-email   2

if you want the IDs of the dups use this:

SELECT
    y.id,y.name,y.email
    FROM @YourTable y
        INNER JOIN (SELECT
                        name,email, COUNT(*) AS CountOf
                        FROM @YourTable
                        GROUP BY name,email
                        HAVING COUNT(*)>1
                    ) dt ON y.name=dt.name and y.email=dt.email

OUTPUT:

id          name       email
----------- ---------- ------------
1           John       John-email
2           John       John-email
5           sam        sam-email
6           sam        sam-email

to delete the duplicates try:

DELETE d
    FROM @YourTable d
        INNER JOIN (SELECT
                        y.id,y.name,y.email,ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY y.name,y.email ORDER BY y.name,y.email,y.id) AS RowRank
                        FROM @YourTable y
                            INNER JOIN (SELECT
                                            name,email, COUNT(*) AS CountOf
                                            FROM @YourTable
                                            GROUP BY name,email
                                            HAVING COUNT(*)>1
                                        ) dt ON y.name=dt.name and y.email=dt.email
                   ) dt2 ON d.id=dt2.id
        WHERE dt2.RowRank!=1
select * FROM @YourTable

OUTPUT:

id          name       email
----------- ---------- --------------
1           John       John-email
3           fred       John-email
