Outlook always finds more ways to piss the living tar out of me. I'm trying to copy a bunch of email addresses to use in another program. All the recipients are already on one of my Outlook emails. It's a mix of people on our Exchange server addressbook and other outsiders. But if the person is in your addressbook already, there's no email address shown, only the name (since Outlook will process it later). For the outsiders that are not in an addressbook, the full email is shown. Now, I'm trying to copy all the email addresses to another program, so the name does me no good. I need the actual flippin' email address. Is there anyway to copy it easily using ctrl-c? NO!! I hate this shitty program.
First, I try to right-click and see if there are any convenient shortcuts there. Nope.
Second, I double-click the name to see the address in the contact window. It's there....but you can't ctrl-c copy it (because of the way it's selected).
The only way I've found it to work is to right-click the name in an existing email, choose "send mail", and copy the address shown...but you have to do it fast before it recognizes the address and converts it back to a name.
This program is the worst thing. I used to rail on the system we had before (Novell Groupwise) but Outlook is worse.
