Hi Experts,

Is there any way to force OWA (Exchange 2003) to automatically add email address of received mails in the contacts ?

Thanks in advance for your help, best regards,

OK, are you sure that it does't exist a workaround for that issue ?

I am not sure what you are asking, but it you checked that link the solution given works.  I personally tried the VBA code that uses the Redemption library and it does what you question requested.

Hi, Sorry for the delay, a bad cold...

Maybe I didn't understand but it seems that the solution you posted is only designed for Outlook  : "

OWA

Although Exchange server’s Outlook Web Access (OWA) is not Outlook (it’s a cleverly designed web application that resembles Outlook), we’re including it here because we do get asked how to automatically add addresses to the Contacts folder when using it.

The answer is “You can’t”. As of Exchange 2010, OWA does not have this capability. To add the feature, an administrator would need to install a server-side application and as of this time, we are not aware of any software available that is capable of doing this.

At this time, users will need to add the contact to OWA using methods supported by their version.

Suggested Contacts created by Outlook 2010 are available in OWA
."

I need to do it for users that only use OWA and have no Outlook profile at all for their mailboxes... I know, it is strange but it is the way they want it...

Thank you for your help.

Sorry, I didn't realize they had OWA only.  There is no solution for your request.
