new email interface: added emails to adress book

new email interface: added emails to adress book

I used to be able to "hover" over an email adress (embedded in an email) and it would show me what was in my adress book for that email.  If the person's name was correct then I was good.  If there was no name in my adressbook for that email adsress then I would click on it, it would take me directly to the addressbook and I could add the persons name quickly (copy & paste from my email).  I get many emails from a registration link and I need to be able to add these embedded emails to may adressbook.

In the new format, open an email from the person in question.  In the header click on the name in the From: field.  You will get a large dialogue box with all kinds of options, including adding them to the address book.

Re: new email interface: added emails to adress book

This does not answer my question.  I need to add emails that "imbedded" within the email.  When I click on the email address it puts the email address into the TO section of a new email.  I can't add it my adressbook easily.  I also used to be able to "hover over" the imbedded email address and if it was in my adress book then it would show the name associated with the email address.

It appears there is no way to do what you are describing in the new webmail UI.  About the only thing you can do is copy the address and then put it into an address book entry.
