Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help me, I previously used Email Address Collector to extract email addresses (from field only) from several folders in Outlook Express.

I now wish to repeat the procedure and then compare the results with the previous results and extract only the email adresses which are new i.e. those that were not in the first list produced.

Is there any way this can be done using Email Address Collector and if not would anyone know if there is a program (peferrably free) that I could use to do it.

Many thanks,

Jasper

Using Email Address Collector, the only solution would be to extract all the addresses again, then to save them to a CSV file, then to open the old CSV file (from your previous extraction) and the new one using MS Excel and to compare the old column with the new column of addresses.

There may be free programs to do basic list operations (you practically need to dedupe list2 from list1), but I personally don't know one...

This ability to compare lists would be extremely useful.

We have just emailed all addresses from my Outlook with details of new offices.
A large number were returned as unknown etc.
I need to remove these from the original list.

Similarly, a few contacts have asked not to be sent further emails.

A tool to make a comparison and then remove or add those that match or don't match would be extremely useful.

Or even one do to this all automatically!!??

Hi Chris,

We are working on v3 of Email Address Collector and it will surely include a tool for comparing lists and doing operations with them (like combine, exclude, difference, etc).

We are trying to release the new version by the end of May, but it all depends on how the beta testing goes.

Regards
Bogdan
