    I like to keep my regular group recipients in a word document and just paste them. Could be me.

    I have to copy from Excel and paste in Word (as text). Then I copy the list in Word and paste in Outlook. Adds an extra step.

    Huge inconvenience when sending out large team or committee emails when you can't grab the emails from a spreadsheet and past them into Outlook email.

    If my email list has a space in it when I copy/paste it will not paste the emails. The old version will

    Trying to copy and paste an email from salesforce into the invitees section of a calendar event crashes the page.

    Yes. That's frustrating. The system keeps toggling me to the new Outlook, but I keep changing it back because of the difficulty with copy/paste for distribution list.

    Can't copy multiple e-mail recipients in order to paste them into a new e-mail.
    Instead I have to replay to all or make a group. Way too many steps and too inaccessible.

    Please also include the ability to drag/drop email addresses between the to/cc/bcc fields

    I am also encountering the same issue on Chrome 70.
    In the old version it was possible to copy multiple email adresses by opening an email in a new window.

    This is not possible anymore.
    This is very problematic since it's also not possible to copy/save a sent email as a draft in the beta and in the old version.

    I like the update but I had to go back to the old version so I could copy emails into a new email. I don't have all of my emails in contacts so it is important to have this feature as I try to do my job.

    You cant even paste a list of emails into the bar. I will easily stop using outlook if this lasts in the new update. For any large group that uses Outlook, this is a huge inconvenience.

    Yes, even as I tried pasting email addresses from Excel and csv files (tried using commas and no commas between addresses as I pasted in the list), the pasted addresses end up as one long single address! 1) New Outlook web version doesn't separate the addresses, and 2) insists on trying to find a match between the pasted mess and my address book, giving an error message of "Match Not Found". Terrible. I don't want Outlook to find a match, i.e. old version accepts any email addresses correctly formatted, pasted in as a list, and without commas.

    I new version it is not possible to cut paste names in send list. Even copying names is bit time consuming as compared to previous version.
