Outlook ContactRescue: How do I analyze the emails from the years before installing Evercontact?

To massively update your address book overnight, you can purchase ContactRescue (formerly Flashback).  This service will analyze your past Outlook email exchanges.

  • It is XXX to scan 20,000 emails or XXX to scan 60,000.  For larger quantities, the software will automatically propose your pricing.
  • You can choose any folder/sub folder to be analyzed 
  • The contacts will then be extracted from the emails and merged back into your Outlook address book.
