MORE INFORMATION

In the Internet Mail Only Mode

If you are running Outlook 2000 in the Internet Mail Only mode, follow these steps to configure Outlook to automatically add senders' addresses to your Address Book:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Preferences tab, click E-mail Options.
  3. Click to select the Automatically put people I reply to in check box, and then select the folder to place senders' addresses.

In the Corporate/Work Group Mode

If you are running Outlook 2000 in the Corporate/Work Group mode and the Personal Address Book service is enabled, and if you have chosen to keep personal addresses in your Personal Address Book, right-click the address and then click Add to Personal Address Book.

To choose to keep personal addresses in your Personal Address Book:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Address Book.
  2. In the Address Book window, click Options on the Tools menu.
  3. In the Keep personal addresses in box, click Personal Address Book.
  4. Click OK.
Alternatively, you can manually add a sender's address to the Contacts folder rather than to your Personal Address Book:
  1. In Outlook, double-click the message to open it.
  2. Right-click the sender's e-mail address or display name, and then click Add to Contacts.
  3. In the dialog box that appears, click Save and Close.
If you want to configure Outlook to automatically add senders' addresses to the Contacts folder or Personal Address Book in the Corporate/Work Group mode, download and install the CaBook program by ORNIC USA, LLC. The CaBook program automates this process by adding the Address Book Manager custom action to the Outlook Rules Wizard.
