Automatically add to contacts from a list of emails

Last Modified: 2010-04-16

I have been requested to find a way to automatically add to contacts a separate contact for each email address in a huge inbox of well over 10000 items. I can see a script that automatically adds addresses when you reply, but this isnt feasible as we would have to reply to each and every email that needs to be added. Is there a script that can scan an inbox for unique addresses and create a contact for each one?

Many thanks
