A new service from a French startup lets people embed a link in e-mail so recipients can more easily add contact information to their address books.
The WriteThat.name plug-in transfers contact info from e-mail signatures to the Outlook address book.
The startup, which automates the extraction of contact information from Google e-mail, is expanding to Outlook and beyond.
Previously, WriteThat.Name just extracted contact info from Gmail messages. Now the service takes a step toward consolidating multiple accounts' contact lists, too.
