I have a customer and have had customers in the past that mistakenly think the auto complete in Outlook is their  contact list.

Is there any way to export the auto complete or is there an application out there that will look through all you sent files and build a contact list?

Anyone know of a product that will extrapolate the email addresses from the send folder?

Your two questions are one in the same because every email address in your sent items folder will be inside your autocomplete. Reference the second link for guidance on importing the autocomplete (aka..sent item destination email addresses).
N2KView will list all sent folder email addresses, this is your extracted list.

The simplest and easiest way to have a "Backup" of the auto completed addresses is to make a copy of the following file;

Windows 7 - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.NK2
Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.NK2

If you need to re-install outlook for any reason make a copy of the Outlook.NK2 file and just replace the default one post installation.

Hope this helps.

As a for instance if you do want to load the addresses from the mail folder then one solution is to use a macro for the purpose though this can be relatively slow and not as efficient as a commercial alternative like:
