Extracting email addresses from the CC field in outlook that has the individual address "behind" a name

Posted on 2007-11-16
Last Modified: 2013-12-04
Hello there:

In Outlook when I recieve an email sometimes there are a bunch of other email-address in the CC field.  Some of these addresses are plain email addresses and some of them are people's names.  To see these addresses I have to manually click on the individual names and then a window pops up with the person's name, email, etc.

Is there a way to automatically go inside an email and extract all these email addresses, whether they are in plain view or behind a name as described above...??

I have no vb (or any programming) experience so any help in this will be greatly appreciated.

Hello driven13,

You can use a third party program like Email Extract Collector to extract the addresses from Outlook emails

Hope this helps!

Isn't there a way to do it through Outlook and not have to install a 3rd-party solution?
