Similar to How do you add a contact to Gmail from incoming email, yet more advanced.

When someone sends me an email, and that email has contact information (e.g. phone numbers, address, company information), how can I create a new contact which auto-fills this information into the new contact fields?

(Currently, I open a new tab and manually copy/paste.)

  • I doubt you can do this natively.

The simple answer is that you cannot natively do this in Gmail! Gmail only offers this type of email parsing for dates which can be used to add calendar events.



Evercontact.com does this for me. Individual use is currently free.
