Is there a way to configure Outlook 2007 to add new contacts to Business
Contacts in Business Contact Manager instead of Contacts when right clicking
on the email address in an email?

Hi

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Outlook does not support right
clicking on an email address and adding it as a Business Contact in lieu of a
Outlook Contact. However, you can add it as a Outlook Contact, then simply
drag and drop that contact from the Outlook Contact folder to the Business
Contact folder and it will automatically make the necessary changes to become
a Business Contact.

Thanks,

If the manual way of doing it that Monica describes does suit your needs,
there is a quick way to add a Business Contact from an e-mail. Especially if
you want to add many at a time, in a few clicks. The method is a little
obscure, but here is how:

1. In your inbox's list of incoming (or any other) mails, right click the
e-mail.
2. Then select "E-mail Auto-link".
3. A dialog box pops up with all of the addresses in the mail.
4. The ones that you currently do not have a Business Contact for have
"unknown" in the column.
5. Select the one(s) you want to make into Business Contacts and click OK
6. The Business Contact has been added, and will have its e-mail autolinked
as well (which can then be turned off again if you don't want it).
7. Now fill in the rest of the Business Contact information as appropriate,
as Full Name and e-mail address are already populated in the Business Contact.

Thanks for your interest in Business Contact Manager for Outlook.
