Automatically adding incoming email addresses to contact list

I have a customer that swears that you can automatically add incoming email addresses to their contact list. I have been searching for an hour online and through manuals and I can't find an answer. Short of writing a rule, does anyone know of a way to do this? Is it an option or an add-on? They are not worried about spam because they are with AppRiver. If someone could help me with my quest I would appricate it. I need to know something here very soon, I am running out of time.

This seems like a good solution. It is an addon and it is only $15. Back in the days for MS Office 97 and 2000 it looks like it was a built in option, but MS removed it... I am going to try to work with VBA to see if I can do it but it has been a while...

Thanks for your help,
