automatically add sender to contacts from a message, and associate withcategory

Matt Arno

I want to be able to automatically save the contact details from an email message in my inbox of outlook 2007, and associate the contact entry with specific categories. I envisage this being a macro that I just click on once I either have the message selected or actually open; i click the macro button and outlook automatically puts the sender (via 'add to outlook contacts' or equivalent) into the contacts list and applies a category. Maybe more than one macro each for a different category. Maybe it would work with more than one selected email message item.

If someone could write the code for me, I'd be very grateful!

cheers,
Matt

For third party utilities that can do at least some of what you need, see
http://www.slipstick.com/addins/contacts_entry.asp - actually, it looks like
at least one add-in might do everything you want (Add Contacts).

If you want to try it on your own, see outlookcode.com for samples.

See http://www.slipstick.com/dev/devlist.asp for developers for hire - I
recommend using the dev list at yahoogroups for small projects such as this
(linked at that page).
