Could make a copy of the workbook then put this in the Worksheets code and run it. I looks in the row for any values that contain an @ then checks the rest of the row for duplicates, if it finds one it gets rid of it. Then once a row is complete moves onto the next one.

Code:
Sub test()
Dim c As Long, r As Long, lrow As Long, i As Long
Dim strEmail As String


lrow = 0
For c = 1 To 150 Step 1
    If Cells(Rows.Count, c).End(xlUp).Row > lrow Then
        lrow = Cells(Rows.Count, c).End(xlUp).Row
    End If
Next c


For r = 2 To lrow Step 1
    For c = 1 To 150 Step 1
        If InStr(Cells(r, c).Value, "@") > 0 Then
            strEmail = Cells(r, c).Value
            For i = c + 1 To 150 Step 1
                If Cells(r, i).Value = strEmail Then
                    Cells(r, i).Value = ""
                End If
            Next i
            strEmail = ""
        End If
    Next c
Next r
End Sub

This is assuming you do in fact have 150 columns and the top row is headers.
