I have 40 or so emails, all with different senders, and I'd like to add all of them to my contact list without having to manually do each one.  Is there a way?

Without scripting, you can do something like that with the Outlook Add On - "Add-Contacts"

Here's a vba function to do it
OM Gang
Public Function AddToContacts()
On Error GoTo Err_AddToContacts
 
    Dim olNS As NameSpace
    Dim olFolder As MAPIFolder
    Dim olMsg As MailItem
    Dim olContact As ContactItem
 
    Set olNS = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olFolder = olNS.PickFolder
    
    For Each olMsg In olFolder.Items
        Set olContact = Outlook.CreateItem(olContactItem)
        olContact.Email1Address = olMsg.SenderEmailAddress
        olContact.FullName = olMsg.SenderName
        olContact.Save
    Next
    
Exit_AddToContacts:
    Set olContact = Nothing
    Set olMsg = Nothing
    Set olFolder = Nothing
    Set olNS = Nothing
    Exit Function
 
Err_AddToContacts:
    MsgBox Err.Number & ", " & Err.Description, , "Error"
    Resume Exit_AddToContacts
    
End Function
