Mac – Import into Address book all email addresses from emails sent of a Mail backup


I would like to import all email addresses from all the emails sent (fields TO:, CC: and BCC:) in Mail (Mac OS X) and add them to Address book in OS X Lion, is it possible?

Best Answer

  • I'm not sure if this covers BCCed recipients, but this should do the trick for you:

    1. In Mail, from the Window menu, choose Previous Recipients.
    2. Notice that entries already in your Address Book are marked with an icon at the left.
    3. Click any item in the list, then type ⌘-A to Select All.
    4. Click the Add to Address Book button in the lower-right of the Previous Recipients window.
