Extract email addresses from Outlook email folders
In order to extract email addresses from Outlook folders, all you have to do is to start Email Address Collector and select Microsoft Outlook on the left-bottom panel: you will see your Outlook email folders displayed on the left panel. To start extracting email addresses from your mail folders, simply select the desired Outlook folder and right click on it to bring up the email address extraction menu:
Extract email addresses from Outlook Contacts
You can extract email addresses from Outlook Contacts in a similar way as described above. But, instead of selecting Microsoft Outlook in the left-bottom panel, you have to select the Contacts menu option. Email Address Collector will display all your Contacts folders in the left panel and you can select from which Contacts folder to extract email addresses from.
Along with with Outlook Contacts folders, the program also displays your Outlook distribution lists, so you can extract email addresses from your distribution lists, too.
How to filter extracted email addresses
Once you click on the “extract email addresses” button, Email Address Collector lets you choose to extract all email addresses from the selected Outlook mail folders or filter the extraction process. You can choose to extract email addresses only from emails received / sent during a certain period of time, emails that contain specified keywords in their subject line or email body content, emails received through a specified account and so on. You can also choose to extract email addresses found only in certain email fields: in the TO, CC or email body. Obviously, duplicates are automatically eliminated.
Once the extraction job is finished, Email Address Collector will display the results in the middle panel. You can then export the email addresses to your preferred destination: Outlook Contacts, distribution lists or CSV files.
