is there a way to add all of the recipients of a group e-mail that I was sent where their names all appear in the CC field of the e-mail? They are a bunch of old college friends and I want to be able to add all of their names at once, instead of each one individually.
Is there an easy way to do this? Much thanks to any help!

    I don't see a way....I selected all the recipients of a message from the cc field, and then clicked on the selection. That brought up the little contextual menu that has Add to Address Book, but it would only list the name of the one person I clicked on. It would not treat the selection as the entire thing.

    There is a collection of AppleScripts called Mail Scripts you can download at this link.

    http://homepage.mac.com/aamann/Mail_Scripts.html

    The script you want to use from the collection of scripts downloaded is Add Addresses (Mail).

    +Add addresses found in the selected messages (in the header fields "From", "To", "Cc", "Bcc", and "Reply-To") to the Address Book. This is much more flexible than the "Add Sender to Address Book" available in Mail and provides a convenient way for creating mailing lists.+

    What I like to do is create a Draft message with all the recipients I want in the CC field. Then when I want to send an email to the same group of people I create a new message. Then I shift select the names in the Draft message and drag them over into the new message CC field.

    This way you can create multiple Draft messages for different groups of people.
