Hi Rene
Have you saved all the contacts first from your inbox emails?
go to contacts at the bottom
You should have your interface on the home tab look way down to the bottom open contacts then click on all contacts then up top export  as CSV
contacts in WLMExport contacts

Hi Merete,

Sorry for the late reply.

The contacts are in emails TO, CC and FROM, not in the contacts folder.

Cheers,
Rene

Hi Rene the auto complete only works when you have added the people to your contacts
Go to an email in your inbox then see the name click on ADD
add contactWhen I create a new email and in the" To" address bar  putting a letter in there automatically expands a list of names starting with that letter.
If not then that person is not in my contact.
How you have compiled the contacts is how the headers will appear in the To address.
send to contactsThe contacts are in emails TO, CC and FROM, not in the contacts folder.<< please explain.
Contacts that are in the To? and CC?
To have auto send to CC? or BCC , make a rule
 the steps on how you can automatically forward emails that were sent to your account using Windows Live Mail.

How I do it is just click on the BCC and the contacts appear click on each one add to CC is quite a quick way to do it.

Hi Merete,
"The contacts are in emails TO, CC and FROM, not in the contacts folder."

I mean that the users never added contacts to there contact folder.  There contacts or either in there auto-complete database or in their emails.  Since contacts are added to the auto-complete database when we reply 3 times to a same contact,  is  need to add their contacts in the contacts folder from were they are available; that is the sent items folder.

So I now seem to meed to find a way to add the emails from the sent folder to the contacts folder.

Thanks and cheers,
Rene

Hello Rene, I am puzzled,
 in the first screenshot I showed how to add a contact from the inbox
To add a contact from the Sent box..
 look below your name in the sent>> there is the recipient  name underneath
you copy that address
highlight to address from sentHighlight this name in your sent under your name, clicking on it while highlighted will open a new email and the name and address is there pull out < > cut off the end  
and copy the first part
adding address from sent then go the bottom  explorer bar windows live, refer to my first screenshot
>Contacts, <  
opens your contacts page> then click on contacts to make a new contact and paste it into the email address fill in the first name last name etc. Then add contact.
Test it by creating a new email and put the first letter of your new contact in the address bar it should auto fill it in
or let you select from a list
new contactRegards Merete

Hi Merete,

I understand your reaction.

I know how to create contacts from emails as you point out. Maybe it would have helped if I would have indicated that I have do this for around 30 users that each have in average 2000 contacts.

As you can see, I must find a way to automate this process.

Thanks and cheers,
Rene

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hello Rene, sorry I dont know if there is such a script for adding that many contacts from the sent emails batch.
It breaks with standard protocols of adding contacts from the inbox
If there is anyway to automate batch adding contacts from emails in my mind maybe a spammers code for mass emailing. ;)
However that is outside my experience range eitherway..
Maybe of help using Outlook for ideas.

As it is the week end wait a bit to see if any other experts can assist you with this batch scripting

Best Wishes
Regards Merete

Hi Merete,

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

As you say, the auto complete only works when you have added the people to contacts.  There does not seem to be any other way.

Thanks for all your help :)

Rene
