    Add Contacts From Sent Mail (MSO 2003)

    I know there's a way to automatically have contacts from mail you send added to your Contacts list... but I cannot for the life of me find it.

    Did they take that OUT od 2003?

    I know it was in 2000.

    ??

    There were two different installations of Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000: Internet Mail Only and Corporate Workgroup. The option to add addresses to Contacts automatically was only available in the Internet Mail Only version, not in the Corporate Workgroup version. Starting with Outlook 2002 (XP), the two versions were merged into one, and the option to add addresses automatically was dropped.

    You can use the code provided in To automatically add recipients to Contacts in Outlook using VBA, or get a third-party add-in to do it for you - a Google search for outlook automatically add contacts will turn up several.

    Hans:

    That's too bad... that was pretty handy, as most of my contacts are people that I e-mail at one point or another obviously, and that saves my from losing track of the e-mail...

    Thanks, though...

    Chuck,
    Although there is no (built-in) automatic way to do this, you can right click on the recipient's address and "Add to Contacts". Alternatively, as Hans has suggested, you can purchase third party add-in. This one looks promising and is US $15.

    John:

    Thanks. Sperry Software has a couple too. I've found some of MAPILab's to be a bit limited, but Sperry's seem more flexible.
