Simultaneously add multiple Outlook contacts from TO line

I received an e-mail with approximately 100 contacts in the "TO" line.  I would like to extract these e-mail addresses to Excel.  If I click Reply To All in Outlook 2003, the TO line displays Firstname Lastname <address@domain.com>.  However, when I select & copy the contents of the TO line, Outlook only sends Firstname Lastname to the clipboard (as a text string, not a mailto link).

I came up with Plan B:   add these people to my contacts, and export my contacts to Excel.  The problem is that I can't figure out a way to copy them to my contacts en masse.  I would have to right click on each one, select Add To Outlook Contacts, then Save And Close.

Any suggestions on how I can add everyone to my contacts at once, or otherwise extract their e-mail addresses?

Here you go:

You'll want to open your email first and then right click one of the names in the TO field and "Select All".  Then copy all of the selected.  Now just follow the steps in the link above.

Sorry, no luck.  That worked for the address entries where the display name was "Firstname Lastname (address@domain.com)", but not when the display name was "Firstname Lastname".
