    Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003


    by trahim ·

    Is there a way to extract email addresses from the Inbox folder of Outlook 2003 without opening each email individually? Perhaps a script or maybe some Outlook feature…

    A user has over 50,000 emails but does not have those email addresses anywhere else. Deleting an email would also delete the contact for her.

      Move e-mail to Contacts folder

      Copying an e-mail to the Contacts folder will automatically create a contact.

      Sort the e-mails by sender first, and select one from each sender. Right-click the selections, choose ‘Move to folder’, then select the Contacts folder. Repeat for the Sent Items folder if necessary. Make the user do it so she a) learns how and b) learns there are consequences for not properly managing e-mail in the first place.

      There are probably cleaner ways. Maybe someone else will chime in. If you really want some educated opinions, try reposting this using the ‘Ask a Question’ button. The ‘Discussion’ forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

      There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the two forums, you’ll find more of those members in ‘Questions’ than here in ‘Discussions’.

      Additional benefits to the membership include:

      1) The “Questions” forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark “helpful” responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

      2) The TR search function makes it difficult to find a particular “Discussion” or “Question” if it has not had a recent post; the two types get mingled in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
