This is a collection of tools useful for updating your Microsoft Outlook Contacts folder. Among this list are tools that "grab" contact data from emails or web pages and create a contact for you. Others will create a contact using the senders display name and email address when you reply to email.
Like the Plaxo service, some of the add-ins will verify the email addresses in your contacts by sending out email messages to everyone in your contacts folder. If the recipient replies with updated information their contact is automatically updated. We don't recommend these services as a rule and many recipients consider this a form of spamming, especially if you use a tool that adds everyone you reply to, to your contacts folder.
Several other kinds of tools related to contacts are listed on their own pages:
- Contact Management Tools
- Telephony Tools -- including utilities to copy contacts to mobile phones and to use contacts with Caller ID
- Print Labels and Envelopes for Contacts
- Start a Letter from an Outlook Contact
