    Hi,

    How do I create an Outlook group or distribution list with people I regularly get emails from but who I haven't added as a contact. These are the contacts that automatically come up when you start writing their email in the 'To' box of an email but aren't in the address book as such.

    I have a couple of hundred of these type of email addresses to add to a group so it'd be great if I can add them in bulk somehow.

    I've been looking around the help forums on Microsoft and various other places but I just can't find out how to do this.

    Please help!

    Alex
    P.S. This is for Outlook 2007

    You can't. They have to be a contact. The list that comes up when you start typing are in a nickname file and not really meant to be used for contacts.
