Hey everyone, My dad currently has a problem. He has hundreds of e-mails in his Outlook program but has only saved like 2% of all the e-mails to his proper contacts tab in the program. The rest he has just kept one email from them so that he can e-mail them back.

Now basically I have got to save all those email addresses from his emails and move them to his new Hotmail account. Any idea how to do this? I have no idea :/

Thanks in advance, Jack

Im not really sure :S he has kept one email from everyone rather than saving them as contacts so when he wants to send a message he has to find their email that he has received then email them back rather than using saved contacts.

I think the only thing that can be done, is to open each one and the save the sending address to the address book or Contacts.

Is this Outlook, Outlook (part of Office) or Outlook Express?

Doesn't Outlook cache email addresses as they are replied too?

What if you open a new email and in the "To" box enter any letter, does it bring up an autocomplete list of addresses?
