My boss has requested the ability to add email addresses to contacts.  He has an email with 100 or more addresses in the TO list and wants to automatically add these to the contacts list (in a separate folder if possible).  The version is OL2002 so there is no option to add reply addresses automatically.  I have found an add-in but would like a different option.  Any suggestions for address farming?

When you say automatically means when you email someone ?? .. SO have your boss typed all the 100 email address in the TO list .. Then in that case just right-click the contact email address ( before right-click just select it) and say
add to contacts. I know it is not easy to do for 100 email address but anyway new emails you are going to type in somewhere ..

Let me check about adding reply email address to contact list.. That option is available in OE. Sure there should be a way in outlook

This is in an email sent to him.  He wants to be able to grab them and add to contacts.  In OL2000 you could reply to all with the option turned on and they would be added.  That option does not exist in OL2002.  I found an add-in from Sperry Software but that has been declined.
I am sure there are address farmimg programs out there (that will handle this task) but haven't been able to find one.

They are in the TO list.  He is one of 100+ and wants to copy them to the contact list so he can email them also.

That may work, but I don't believe my boss would be too happy with the Redemption add-in needing to be installed.  I will check into that one.  Anything else?
