Copy and paste multiple email addressed
In the current version you copy and paste email addresses. it would be helpful to be able to do that in this update.
We’ll try to ship this in the next few months!

I've figured out a different way to do this, until the update is out.
If you're trying to copy multiple email addresses from a previous email you received:
1. Go to that email
2. Click reply all (this will turn it into a draft)
3. Go to your drafts folder, and select that email
4. In the BODY of that email, you will see the email addresses like so: Student 1 <email@example.com>; Student 2 <Student firstname.lastname@example.org>; etc
5. Copy all of it.
6. Create a new message and paste everything into the "to" field!
You're welcome :)

It's unfathomable that this hasn't been built yet.

I... I can't believe this isn't an option. Gmail had had this for years. I am currently trying to e-mail a group of students I'm supervising, and my only options are (1) reply-all to a previous e-mail, but I can't change the subject line or (2) manually copy and paste every. single. address. one. by. one. By clicking on the name in the "to" field. And copying it from the pop-up.
Is there a better way to do this? :( :( :(

Cannot paste small comma separated list of email addresses (4) into the CC field. What kind of useless designer makes that decision?
Regarding the COPY part of this problem: There is an easy way to copy email addresses from the "To:" field of the email in the Premium version. First, open the More Actions menu (three dots in the upper right corner). Select the Print option. As soon as the email opens for Print, the email addresses can be selected and copied.
To PASTE, click Reply, Reply All, or Forward, and you can paste any email addresses you have in the clipboard.

Any reason why users cannot copy and paste multiple email addresses from sent or received emails? Competing email services seem much more user friendly on this front...
"next few months".....it's now January 2020!

copy paste email please!!!

This needs to be implemented promptly. It is standard functionality in other similar services.

I switched to the old version just for this function - to copy&paste a list of multiple email addresses from another email that I received. But now I can't do this anymore in Outlook - sad!
Just copy GMAIL for god's sake
as per all the complains, appreciate if you can resolve the copy and paste email addresses from received emails/previous sent emails.
copy paste email, please...
Please add the copy and paste feature for multiple email addresses, the new version makes it a paint to use outlook. The program is supposed to make work easier, not harder. Please let us go back to the old version.
To add to this, even if you hit "reply" as a workaround you can't even highlight or copy addresses that way. And when you are just viewing an email, if you try to highlight text in the email along with addresses, etc, it skips the addresses and only lets you copy the body and subject. We use this a ton for documenting approvals via email, etc. It's crazy that there's almost no way, other than a screenshot, for me to copy email addresses.
You haven't restored the old copy function, with the old copy function you could select mutltiple emails and copy them with one click to a new location. Now with the new soltuion you have to over and over again for all the emails you'd like to copy.
Please integrate the copy feature to the menu which shows up when you select multiple emails.
The new experience is really frustrating as you don't really care if it's useable. It took you forever to implement a single copy feature but it's still isn't as useable as the old one where you could copy multiple emails with one click. Now you want to force the new experience for all users without the possibility to switch back. We'd like nothing more that just use the old experience as this is working perfectly.

I am so frustrated. I have tried several things but to no avail. I have a couple outlook accounts and when wanting my school outlook, my work outlook shows up. I have tried to switch to other account button. doesn't work. I have tried going through settings. doesn't work. I have tried going through a different browser. doesn't work. to be honest, if it were in my control I would not go through outlook but find another option.
