I would like to export my emailed contacts from Microsoft Outlook 2007 into an Excel spreadsheet or a csv text file.  Unfortunately, I am not able to do so for some reason.  How do I do this?  I tried to export the email addresses of people that I have already emailed, but for some reason I am only able to export their names.  Please let me know how I am to do this...thanks!

    I would recommend adding the individuals to your contacts in Outlook then Exporting the contacts from Outlook.  This should allow you to export to CSV.

    It sounds like you want the email addresses of the people you have sent email to rather than the Outlook Contacts contacts. Try this freeware program that will read your NK2 file and then get you the output you're looking for.

    After running it, you will see all of the people you have emailed to (that are in your NK2 file). You can then go to Edit > Select All. Then go to File > Save Selected Items > set the Save As Type to .csv > name the file and then Save to a location that is easy for you to access (like the Desktop). You can then open the resulting CSV file in Excel and then use the column with email addresses as you need.

    It seems like there is a vcf file for each emailed contact that I would like to grab information from.  Is there a way I can gain access to a certain database or even parse information out of this emailed contact list so that I can gain access to the emailed contact lists only?
