    Stop email addresses from being automatically saved to Contact Lis

    My Contact List is full of addresses I did not save. They are addresses that
    I recognize from an e-mail received from a friend.

    I have selected Windows Mail to save email addresses of those I reply to -
    but I have not replied to these folks.

    Thank you,

    If you accidentally hit Reply All the addresses are saved even though you
    didn't send with the Add to Address Book option checked. IMO, the safest
    thing to do is to remove the Reply All button from the toolbar.
