    'Check Names' hangs outlook (2000 SR-1)

    We have some addresses that start with "~", for admin. purposes. If I enter "~" on its own in the "To" field of a new message and then try to do a name check, Outlook hangs and I need to use Task Manager to shut down Outlook and then relaunch.

    I checked and hang also happens if I use any non-alphabetic character, e.g. a number or a punctuation mark.

    Is this a known bug?

    For what it's worth, it doesn't hang on my OL2k, sr1, c/w on Exchange 5.5 sp3. We use "~" to indicate an address that doesn't have a mailbox on the Site and there are about 500 entries. If you have more, maybe you're hitting a limit on the number of items that can be resolved. Just a guess.

    We only have two or three that begin with "~"
    Anyway, same thing happens with *any* non-apha character
