Make email addresses easier to copy and paste.
I often need to copy and paste a user's actual email address to look them up in our CRM and other systems. Having their name in a blue oval doesn't help me, I have manually go into the contact editing window to copy their name out, then I have to manually close that window. It's a pain. I just need the email address as selectable text so I can copy it.

Unbelievable that 2 years on, this still hasn't been implemented. Having to click on the person's email in message, then choose to send them an email before it's possible to copy their email to use elsewhere is a terrible bit of user design.

This needs to be easier to copy a phone number too - it's underlined, but I don't have SIP and can't call so I need top copy and paste someone's phone into a chat window to send it off, etc...
I wish this was possible as well. I copy email addresses all day and it's an extra step to delete everything that surrounds the email address.

Having a large distribution list in Excel, would like to be able to create the same list in Outlook for Mac and just copy/paste the list into the distribution list.

It's possible this exists and I don't know how to do it, but I would love to be able to create a contact group and copy/paste multiple contacts into the group at one time instead of having to add them one by one.
