adding email addresses

  TN 18:12 10 Nov 2005

Is it possible in Outlook (2003) to automatically add an email address to the contact file from an incoming email. I have lost all my contact addresses although they are all in an Outlook 'backup' file but I cannot open it as I am told it is not a correct file to import! With this in mind I thought it might be a lot easier to get the addresses automatically if this were possible. Also how do you stop Outlook downloading emails every 15 minutes or so - it did not do this before evrything went pear shaped on me. All advice appreciated

If you have a backup .pst file click here

You can add individuals to your Contacts by opening the e-mail and then right clicking their e-mail address and add to contacts but you should be able to import your backup fully.

Many thanks Taff - worked a treat - have got all my contact back - still can't understand why everything just disappeared from the programme - no trojans or viruses on computer to blame.

One of life`s little mysteries - how about a tick in the resolved box. Cheers

Still not ticked. Still a problem from the "old" forum. Tick the resolved box and click resolved button - don`t post a message!
