<h3><a name="usingit"></a>Using addressContext</h3>
After installing and restarting, whenever a message is right-clicked,
a new option should be available in the context menu:<br>

Simply choose one of these and a dialog
will be invoked, depending on whether the Sender or Recipients are
being added as a list or as individual cards:<br>

<h3><a name="addressCleanup"></a>Address Cleanup</h3>
To speed up the address book entry process, addressContext attempts to
clean up the information provided. If the email is provided in the
format "<span style="font-style: italic;">User Name</span>" &lt;<span
 style="font-style: italic;"></span>&gt; or <span
 style="font-style: italic;">User Name &lt;</span>&gt;
addressContext takes <span style="font-style: italic;">User Name</span>
as the DisplayName and <span style="font-style: italic;"></span>
as the e-mail. Further, it will take the last full word in the Display
Name as the Last Name and the rest of the Display Name as the First
Name. Though this format isn't applicable in all cases, it is at least
a way of getting the information into the Add Card screen.<br><br>Finally, the newest version of addressContext also looks for and removes duplicate email entries, so adding an entire Inbox will not yield a large amount of duplicate entries.
