    I must endorse Jon Page's comments. We still can't easily 'add contact' direct from an email

    I have 2 outlook address books; 1 personal, 1 business. When I try to add a personal entry by the method you describe here, it invariably goes into the business address book every time. I can't seem to change it over to the personal address book. Is there a way?

    When I right-click on the email address in O365, I have two options, "Copy email address" and "View details". It seems Roger Taylor said the same thing a year ago, and yet here we are still.

    It doesn't work. Nowhere is there a way to add the name to my "people". "Add to outlook contacts" does not appear.

    the open fields you show above now longer exist Microsoft! I used to cut and paste the persons signature info from their email to the open notes field...then drag and drop phone, address, title to appropriate fields. BUT NOW, I have to click several times to open these fields. Bizarre....it certainly looks like change for the sake of change, even if it makes things worse. Do they use their own software! Oh, you may be thinking, "couldnt there be a software that would search through the email and find the signature info and fill in all the fields for use!?" GREAT IDEA! Seems like there are people out there doing that already.

    I am trying to "edit" outlook 2013 contacts from emails .... however, when opening the dialog box, I am prompted to "add" the contact rather than edit the existing contact. furthermore, if I choose to "add" the contact, it is not saving the contact or changes. This problem just began ... I was not having a problem previously. ????

    I used to use this process all the time in Outlook 2010, but we just switched to Outlook 2013 and the "add to outlook contacts" option is no longer there. Any suggestions, am i missing something?

    Can you group all previous sent emails and email all of them under BCC emai blast? Cannot copy and paste all my sent email addresses in a BCC email for an email blast in Outlook 2013. Have NOT created contacts - just have sent email addresses.
    Can this be with this tool? I used to be able to copy and paste in Vista after clicking on the "To" button when sending an email and all addresses would appear in a dropdown where you could copy and paste them in batches. Nothing like this available?
    Thanks, SMP
