    how to edit email address?

    This is something that has annoyed me for years.
    In Outlook 2000 (and previous versions as well), if I type
    an Internet email address such as:

    fettucine.alfred@iloveitalianfood.com

    Outlook will take a second and then underline the
    the email address as if it's somehow verifying it.
    If I then realize that I made a typo and, say, want to
    add an "o" after "alfred," I can't do it. As far as I
    know, I have to delete and retype the whole thing.
    Is there any way to alter this behavior?

    Thanks.

    If you double click the address, a properties box with the address filled in should pop up, then you can edit it using standard editing techniques.

    Oops I feel stupid. Was it always like this?

    Thanks.

    I think so, but I've been using OL 2000 for a while, so I'll let someone else jump in, if I'm wrong.

    no, i'm 99.9% you are correct and it's always been this way. if i can find a machine with older versions installed, i'll check.

    It's not important, thanks. Just goes to show how easy
    it is to get in a rut and not figure out the proper/easy
    way to do things. [img]/w3timages/icons/frown.gif[/img]
