    For you guys who has Outlook on your phone, does it continue to add new email contacts when you're responding back to people? I respond back to hundreds of email everyday either on my phone or laptop and in doing so, it adds these contacts to my list. I would have to delete a lot of contacts that I don't want every month because of this. Is there a way to disable this?

    are you talking about adding the contacts to your phone contacts? if so, go into the email account in settings and uncheck sync contacts

    But by unchecking it, it deletes all my exchange contacts. I don't want that to happen because I use my phone to check my email a lot. I just need Outlook to stop adding new ones.

    your outlook should have the contacts saved already once you send them an email.

    i had my yahoo contacts sync checked and it was adding email address to my phone contact list. i unchecked that and it doesn't save anymore. i also went to try to send a new email through yahoo and was able to see the contacts i have sent emails to before. typed in the name brett for example and it has the suggestion of brett.xxxx@xxxxx.com for me to select

    I don't know about Yahoo, but with Outlook, unchecking the syncing of contacts gives me a message that it will delete all contacts.
