Add contact from email message

Is there an easier way to add a BCM contact?

Right now, when I receive an email from a new contact, I right click on the 
contacts name/address in the message header; then select Add Contact.  After 
typing in the pertenant details for the contact.I save it.  Then, I have to 
go into Outlook Contacts and drag that contact into Business Contacts. 
Then, I assign it to the appropriate account.

There must be an easier way??

The ability to add a new contact from an email is not available in BCM like 
it is for regular contacts. I agree that it would be nice.

4.add multiple contacts from open email message

Can I add multiple contacts easily from the header of an incoming message to 
my contact list? For instance, the office manager sends an email to a dozen 
associates and I want an easy way to add the dozen contacts rather than by 
right clicking and adding each one of them one by one.

5.Cannot Add Public Contacts to a New Email Message from Outlook

Good Morning,

I have a client who is running WinSvr2k3Std with Exch2k3Std.  We recently 
updated their server to new hardware and all has been well until now...

After adding their Public Calendar and Contacts to their Favorites, they 
were able to view the by selecting their local Calendar and Contacts tabs as 
long as they remembered to check the box to view them each time they logged 

However, when a user attempts to send out an email to ALL CONTACTS in the 
Public Contacts, they do not have that option.  They are selecting New 
Message-->To Button-->and the Address Book drop down menu only shows Global 
Address List and Local Contacts.

When the user attempts to access the Public Contacts for this...they get a 
permissions error.  This was not the case on the old server and old server 
settings are identical to current hardware.

Am I missing something here???
