    Is there anyway to drag and drop a contact info from the signature line of a email in entourage so that a contact is created?

    IE if the bottom of someones email has the info below can I highlight it or do someother manuver so that I dont have to retype it all to create a contact? I have tried everything I can think of but nothing works.

    IE if the signature line is:
    GI Joe
    111 Penselvania Ave
    Washington DC 333333
    gi.joe@disney.com
    444-222-1212

    Could I somehow get that into a contact without retyping?
    Im a newby and did search but didnt find anything.
    Sorry if this is old news.

    Too many users format their signatures in too many different ways for too many different purposes. There is no way to develop a reliable algorithm to convert signatures into contact information. If you want to create a contact from a received message, then select the Message > Add to Address Book menu item.

    Outlook 2003, xp, and 2007 work perfect in doing this...sure they miss something from time to time but I dont have to retype the company and title and for the most part the cell numbers and business and fax numbers are solid.

    Also the calendar lets me drag and drop to create an appointment.
    Ugh...just trying to make the move to mac from xp and wanting to do it right.
    Thanks again
