Quick & Easy Way To Export Email Lists By Mining Outlook


How many times have you wished for a simple and easy way to create and export email lists by mining your email inbox?

Wait no more! Clear Context, a San Francisco-based start-up that makes an in-box management plug-in for Microsoft Outlook has come up with a new product called, Contact Exporter for Outlook. Of course you will need their inbox management plug-in, a for-pay product.

The Contact Exporter is a beta feature in ClearContext IMS v4 that lets you create and export groups of email addresses found in messages stored in the Outlook folders you select.

What it essentially does is create a list of email addresses found in messages from a set of folders users choose. And these can be used to create distribution lists. You can create say, an email list for a birthday invite and export the list in the CSV format. You can export files and import them into any application that will allow you to import CSV files. Facebook and Socialzr are two such web services. I think this export feature is quite handy. If you want to know more, check out their website.



I’m looking for a software program (or way to do it from Outlook) that can import a text file with a list of e-mail addresses and names that correspond to each address.

I only need to do one file, but it’s quite big. Does anyone know how to do this? Outlook should have an option somewhere to do it on its own.

Anyone know???

Thanks for the mention, Om! Just wanted to mention that people can use the Contact Exporter without purchasing the IMS product – The Contact Exporter download comes with a 30-day trial of ClearContext IMS, but the Contact Exporter will remain functional after the trial expires. I also wrote up a short post on the direction of this stuff on my blog: http://www.emaildashboard.com/2007/12/revisiting-the.html
