Copy/Paste Email and Valid Address
No longer can paste a long TO address so can be removed from spam email. When type in doesn't recognize as valid address and will not send, PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!
Please allow editing in the To field. I miss being able to copy, paste, and edit an address as needed!

Easier way to copy and past addresses emails betwen TO filed and CC or BCC..
Dear Outlook Team,
Everyday I send emails like bank statemen to my line manager that many other people are into Cc of email from finance department, when I used Gmail there is ability to sample select contacts from Cc of an already sent email and past to new email Cc, but in Outlook it is not possible, even when I copy the list of contacts from Gmail, or note pad or MS word it not accept them even they are already saved to contacts of Outlook.com, it is not good to every day select and add each email into Cc one by one waste time, I request outlook add ability when a or contacts are paste and they are already saved automatically adjust them, as Gmail do.
FYI I’d test following put emails as following, Outlook not accept and read all types.
Outlook cannot read and adjust any above type
why can I not copy the email address out of a To? it's insane! to find a person's email address to include in the body of a message I have to jump through hoops like crazy.
the new way of contact addresses showing when you click on To is awful. Alphabetical way was much better. Why can't we have a choice of display systems.
And impossible to select addresses in Contacts list and get their address into the bcc box. It will only go into the To box.
This almost makes Outlook unusable for me.
We run a business using our outlook email account and right now cannot send out out our Newsletter. How are we supposed to run our business this way???

Just like all the others...can't paste in email addresses any more...you say it is fixed by logging out and logging back in...it isn't! This is just hopeless.

I am shocked this has not yet been fixed and as someone who is in radio (2,000 segments a year nationwide) I am looking forward to addressing this issue in coming shows.
The tech team is constantly changing things and taking away things that before were designed to be user-friendly and making it easier for us to do our job. I am now forced to use my GMAIL account for the simple reason that I no longer and copy and past emails into the BCC section of my email.
How is this possible and why has it not yet been addressed? Because no one cares and it shows.

Suddenly I cannot paste multiple email addresses into the To, CC of Bcc fields. I have tried right clicking the mouse to paste, and also Ctrl+V. Have tried multiple browsers. This used to work. Please fix the problem
Copied Email list is not getting pasted in Bcc column...
It is letting us to enter only single email addresses
which is time consuming..
Any solution please...
Hi People - I have been with outlook since hotmail...since like 2000. I seriously may have to get a new email if you cannot fix the problem where I cannot copy and paste an email address. There is no way that I can find to highlight the email and copy and paste it. Sometimes I want to add it to a database...not email them. This happens to me a lot and it takes so many clicks and swearing. I am frustrated enough I am writing you. I hate it. Hate enough to go get a new email.
