I lost my contacts in my address book from external users.  I still have the emails that they sent me.  Is there a way in Outlook 2010 to highlight all my messages and extract the address from them?  I know outlook allows you to group them but I just wonder if there is an easy way to do this?

Thanks

Depending in the version out out look will determine how much of a pain this is.  The later the version the Microsoft's anti virus protection gets in the way.  The easiest way it to create a macro using VBA to read each message and also to read teh address book.  Read each message using the MAPI api and check to see if it/s in the address book.  If it is goto the next messageotherwise create a message.  The problem is this is axactly (in reverse that the big viruses of the 90's did remember Melissa Virus.

I found a solution by copying my old suggested contacts from one profile to another profile.
