I've got a really stupid problem with Outlook (in Office 2007 suite) which I hope someone can help with??

Simples really.

I can't get it to automatically add email addresses I respond to, into my address book.

There's gotta be a silly tick box or summin somewhere, but I can't find it for the life of me!!


Help!!

B U M ! !

What utter crap!

Dabbled with other email applications in the past like Lotus Notes (Hated it!) and Thunderbird (Liked it) and obviously Outlook Express (which added to contact no probs!)


Oh well, a re-think is needed then, as I'm just setting up my replacement laptop, and just spent ages writing all the rules for different folders and different email addresses, only to find it can't do this one silly thing!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH


So I've got to manually add every email address I want to keep?? Just seems so backward!!


:mad:

here's what it says for adding details


Add a contact from a message that you receive



  1. Open or preview the message that contains the name that you want to add to your contacts.
  2. Right-click the name of the sender who you want to make into a contact, and then click Add to Contacts on the shortcut menu.

Imagine if you replied to emails from Play, Ebay, Tesco yadda yadda, do you really want all those adding to your address book?

Outlook 2007 is very sweet and goes nicely with Windows 7.

I work in IT support and whilst strictly not a Windows basher, if something is good I'll say so.

As mentioned above, right clicking the address in the open email and adding to contacts seems quite straight forward to me.

I don't know if it still applies, but watch out if you have too many rules, it used to slow Outlook down.

If you really want a pain, think about tappets on a Varadero, you need to remove the camshafts to adjust... Glad I've got a Transalp:D

Good luck

Mmm, the next time I want toast, I'll use a toaster (Live), or I could use my cooker (Outlook) as it has a lot more features I also use from time to time:D
Stop bashing Outlook, it does a lot of other things.
Jeesh you guys, you should all ride singles with a standard carb, points, a speedo only, no indicators, no side stand , no main stand and no seat. that way you can have something that just does the job:rolleyes:

Yep, outlook is great at what it does, in this case it just doesn't do it...

Personally I use thunderbird purely as it's free ;)

Good news if you have kids, go to:
www.software4students.co.uk

You can buy Office 2007 complete for 30 odd quid.

Home use obviously:thumbup:

Used them twice recently. My surrorgate daughter who is at Uni in Sheffield bought Windows7 and Office 2007 for me to put on her new laptop, which she is letting me use until she comes home :rolleyes:
