I want to save names and addresses in my contact list automatically by simply replying to a message. I am using Outlook 2002. I found some info on editing the VBAproject.otm file but it doesn't seem to work in 2002. This seems like such a simple request I can't beleive that it isn't an option in Outlook 2002. Or is it?

    After opening the message, right-click on the name in the "From" line and select "Add to Outlook Contacts".

    You obviously set the Tools/Macro/Security warning to Medium? Otherwise, it is set to high which blocks all macros
    Set to Medium, close OL then restart

    Thanks for the help. After doing this I asked myself why Microsoft removed this feature from OL 2002. I hope that I am not making a mistake
