Adding Contacts to Received E-Mails



  • 1. creating & using an autotext document in outlook
    Hi all I've just purchased office 2007, I had previously used office2003. In 2003 I was able to create word documents and save tham as ready made reply templates for use via "autotext" on office outlook 2003, it worked really well. Now call me stupid (Rhetoricall request) But I can't figure out how to do the same thing in 2007, any suggestions. (In simple terms for I've a simple mind)
  • 2. Export folder sizes
    Hi, I searched for this on the net, but couldn't find any solution: is it possible to export the outlook folder sizes to something like xls or txt, so that they can be sorted (by size)? It seems like a natural thing to do and I expected there was an easy to do this, but I haven't been able to find it. The reason I want to do this is because I have reached the quota on my mailbox and need to delete old/unnecessary emails. As I have *a lot* of folders, I want to concentrate on the largest ones first. Before you suggest archiving to a PST, this is not allowed by our IT department and we're blocked from using PSTs at all. Thanks, Arnaud
  • 3. REPOST: Load up different pst file for main personal folder?
    My Outlook 2003 is currently pointing to the wrong .pst file. I want to change it but all I seem to do is open a new Personal Folders group which I don't need. How do I open the correct file for data in original Personal Folder?
  • 4. Can someone please help me with Outlook 2007 inbox views
    I currently use Outlook Express but have had Outlook 2007 for a few years but have not used it. I would like to start using Outlook 2007 and have started to try and customize the look to my liking, however I am having trouble figuring out how to have my messages show up in a single line without the "space and delivered" under each message. I want the same look as OE without the preview pane. I would also like to customize the format of the text that appears in the message section Thanks
  • 5. Adding Public Folder/Calendar to Favorite Folders
    Is there a way to add a Public Folder/Calendar to the Favorite Folders displayed in the "mail" view? The calendars/public folders are already in the Favorites in Public folders, but if I right-click on the items I don't get the "add to favorites" option. Any thoughts? TY

Adding Contacts to Received E-Mails

Postby Louis James » Wed, 14 Apr 2004 22:01:22 GMT

When I receive e-mails, I typically add the contact name to
that e-mail for later filing.  I go to message options and
"add" the contact.  

Does anyone know of an "automatic" way to do this?  I have
tried rules but that does not seem to help.  Outbound
e-mail is not a problem because I go to the contact in my
address book and start a new message from their.  Outlook
2003 adds the contact name.

It's inbound that I have a problem with.  Any suggestions
would be appreciated.

Not sure how to automate it, but you can right-click on the sender's name
and add to contacts that way....

1.Adding Contact Info to Received E-mails

When I receive e-mails from someone that is already in my address book, I want to OL2003 to "look up" that e-mail address and add it to the "Contact" information on the e-mail.  I'm currently doing this manually.  And there does not seem to be a rule to apply. 

The reason is that I store these e-mails for later reference and I sort them by Contact name.  Originally, I did so by e-mail address but several have multiple e-mail addresses (home, work, etc).  Hence the reason for using the contact name

Does anyone know of a method, script, third party utility, or prayer that might work.  Or maybe my concept is wrong. 

Thanks for the help.

3.adding multiple contacts at one time from a received email

Is there a way to add multiple contacts from the header of an email
sent to me as part of a distribution group? I know I can right-click on
them one-at-a-time and do "Add to contacts..." but that's a nuisance
for 50+ addresses.  Is there a way to do this in bulk?
