Outlook 2003 converts email addresses to text
Posted 30 March 2012 - 04:00 AM
He looked in his Contacts but Derek is not listed there.
So he began an email to him by writing "Derek" in the To: line. Outlook obligingly filled in the rest.
Boss then scooped this up with his mouse.
He pasted it into an open email to me but instead of putting firstname.lastname@example.org, Outlook translated this email address into the bloke's name.
How can he get Derek's email address into a message to me? Thanks! We're going mad here... and Derek stil doesn't have his docs.

The rest of the name or the rest of the email adress ?
he began an email to him by writing "Derek" in the To: line. Outlook obligingly filled in the rest.
If only the name appears, right click and choose "Properties", then copy/paste the entire email adress.

Boss scooped this up and pasted it into a message to me - and it reverted to Derek's given name, surname.
I think something must be set in boss's Outlook (or the way his contacts are stored) that causes this to happen. It doesn't happen with me: I can scoop and paste and the email address stays an email address. But what? That is the question.

If the adress displays and he selects copies the text, then it should work. If he just copies the "object" then he migh have a different output in an other type of window.
Outlook filled in the whole thing - name and email address.
Boss scooped this up
