I thought there use to be a setting in Outlook that would save a contacts email address automatically, if you replied to their email. I can't seem to find this in 2007.

Can anyone advise. Will this be in 2010?

You can't automatically save contacts in older versions without using a 3rd party addin (http://www.slipstick.com/contacts/addauto.asp has more information and a list of tools), however the autocomplete list saves a list of most resently used addresses, which some people confuse with saving contacts. It's not reliable and contacts you need saved should be added to contacts.

Outlook 2010 has a Suggested contacts folders and creates contacts for people you send to, automatically. They did this because too many used the autocomplete list as their only address list and its wasn't reliable.

Outlook 2007 or 2010? Do you mean you don't want to save the autocomplete list? Options, Email options, advanced: suggest names is near the bottom. Screenshot:http://slipstick.me/jing/suggest.png (2007)
