    EMAIL (2002/xp)

    I have numeruos names in my contact list, When I try to enter an email address from the contact email field, it will not transfer the address to the new email "To" field. I have been copying and pasting. I'm sure I have something set up wrong, but what? Any suggestions?

    Have you enabled the Contacts Folder as an Address Book as descibed in <!profile=JScher2000>JScher2000<!/profile>'s <!post=Star Post,334705>Star Post<!/post>. With the Contacts Folder visible, have you tried using Actions | New Message to Contact?

    I've just discovered a fix, however it's going to take some time to fix all contacts. Opening the properties window of a contact,
    In the Email field there is an email address (johndoe@abc.com). In the "display as" field the entry is
    " (John Doe (johndoe@abc.com)". If I replace the address part of the "Display as" field by copying and pasting the email field address "johndoe@bmcoi.com" all is well. Any light bulbs turn on?

    We've posted some macros in the past that try to update the Display As information. I think there is something stubborn about that part of Outlook, but I can't recall whether we managed to get around it or not. Hopefully with a search or two you can find the relevant thread(s) and code(s).

    You have split this problem between this thread and <!post=this thread,334655>this thread<!/post> - for future reference, try to keep it all in one thread, so Loungers can follow the problem and see any resolution.
