i don't think there's a way of doing this automatically through outlook, you have to add them manually as far as i know. outlook express does this automatically - but then thats mostly used for internet mail....

you could try this site has loads of useful utilities you might find an addon there...

I dont think that outlook(97) can do it automatically (no rules and i canmt fins anything undedr tools -> options -> *.
But when you have a message open you can right click on the sender and choose "add to personal...."

About O-express isn't it only the replied addresses that it adds to the address book?

I have found that this option is available only with the Internet Mail configuration and not with Exchange Server configuration (Corporate or Workgroup option).

Do let me know if there is any way of doing it using Rules.

I have look through the rules wizard and i dont think you can use that option. as far as i can see you will have to right click on the addresses in the open mails :-(
