    e-mail "harvesting / farming" software

    Hi guys,

    I'm throwing this question out there in the hope that someone might be able to point me in the right direction...!

    My objective is to try & "harvest" all the e-mail addresses from e-mails received / sent into my Outlook address book or a "csv" / excel table.

    I've previously heard that there's software available that can "trawl" through your e-mails & genereate a list of all e-mail addresses in sent & received e-mails, incl. CC'd addresses on e-mails received from others.

    Don't worry, it's not for spamming! I'm changing my e-mail address & I want to send out my new details to every contact / client / associate, supplier etc... I really don't want to miss out on anyone.

    Aftere seven years I have a .pst file of about 3GB so I'm trying not to have to do it manually.

    Any advice?

    I tried this Google search and of those, this one in particular seemed to have some promising options.

    Well I have heard of emailaddressmanager.com but I have no idea if it works. I have never tried to do something like this before.

    I've got a little disk at home somewhere with a program that you point at just about anything and it sucks out any string in an email format. Never tried it, though - and it's probably antique by comparison to some of those on offer at those links.
