Outlook Autofill...
Can it be exported to an address book?

 8:46 pm on Aug 30, 2004 (gmt 0)

A client wants to sign up for our SPAM filter which is partly rules based. In order to allow for the most seamless transition possible, we need to import his address book to the approved senders list. (That list lets people he wants right through) Trouble is, he's never kept addresses in an address book... he's only ever used Outlook's autofill feature. How can we get addresses from there in an automated way? (I've thought of just going a, b, c, d, and copying all the addresses out of the box, but that's pretty tedious.)

Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated!

As far as I am aware there is no way to get this information easily i.e. no export feature.

When Office XP launched, I spoke to one of the Senior Tech Support people here in Australia because I wanted the ability to be able to remove some bad email addresses from the auto complete. He checked with the developers and there was no way to do so - no clear history like there is with IE.

Perhaps you can get start "afresh" and allow outlook to copy anyone he replies to to his contacts folder automatically. Just a thought.

I found a program that will read the .n2k file which is a nickname (autocomplete address) file, the application can export the addresses.

Sticky mail me, and I'll give you the site.

Well, that's a great little program!

I like it so much that I've contacted the people who sell it to see if they will offer a two-time use only version of the program for a discounted fee that we could incorporate into the setup fee for our new spam filter clients.

Definately worth looking in to.

Glad it worked for you Mike
