Copy or Edit Email address
I absolutely, positively, despise and HATE how I can not easily and quickly edit or copy an email address.
In the Search box, once you add an email address, it's "stuck" and you can't click it to edit it. For example, if I search 'email@example.com', but I later decide I want to modify the search to '@outlook.com', I have to delete the entire email address and retype it. For some idiotic reason you think I want this pop up box to display when I click the email address. Double clicking the email address should allow me to manually edit it (like in the olden days). Single click should display the popup box.
It's worse on the mobile app, once an email address is in the TO, CC, or BCC, that's it, there's no going back. Can't copy it, edit it, or drag it to another field. In mobile, just to copy an email address, I have to click it, go to a different window, long press and then copy. Lame.
Why are you so ****-bent on restricting our ability to easily copy or edit email addresses from the search box or TO, CC, BCC fields. LOOSEN IT UP. It's despicable.
Gmail makes it easy, with one click, in web or app, to copy or edit the email address from the said fields. Copy them.
This one seems to be dead, no movement?
100x agree. preposterous. can't copy-paste list of addresses from a received email, from a meeting, OR EVEN if you reply-all and try to select recipients to paste into a new email.
Is it so inconceivable that your users would want to start a new thread with an existing list of collaborators?
It also seems like efforts were made to make text content un-selectable, which is so so insane from a UX perspective.
I feel like I've entered crazytown every time I use Outlook.
I couldn't agree more with the content and the tone of this request. It's incredibly frustrating and serves no purpose. A general rule of software is, if I entered it, I can edit it. The inability to copy/paste a list of addresses is equally infuriating.
You make selecting things to copy them SO FREAKING HARD. I'm trying to highlight an email address so I can copy it, and first it brings up the contact tile, and then when I copy from there it starts an email to that person. I just want to copy their email address so I can make a new inbox rule. It does this with locations too in calendar invites, which really sucks when your boss always puts their zoom link as the "location" of the meeting.
You should be able to copy and paste emails from a "to" section of an email in Outlook for the web.
THERE IS NO WAY TO COPY ADDRESS FROM MEETING. address is not selectable
The ability to copy the email address from the main screen of the email list without the need to open the email . The user must have the ability to copy the email address from all the mail pages . Without opening additional pages
please allow copying recipients from BCC via web in sent item folder. thank you
We were able to copy contacts in the To line in the previous Outlook on the web, but the new version doesn’t allow us to do it.
So, please implement the functionality.
Agree with others, when copying the entire email, it skips the "to" and "cc" fields! And you can't highlight individually either. It's just very difficult to copy email addresses for pasting or using in another email, etc.

Currently Web Outlook doesn't allow you to copy Email IDs. I have to open the invite on the Desktop outlook to be able to do so. It would be great if I can copy them on the web version as well.
When copying whole email, including Subject, doesn't include email address
Mail Ids from sent items cannot be able to copied . in previous version we had that option . kindly check into that .
cant copy receipients from an existing email. how stupid!?
Can not copy the email address groups from previous email
Unable to select and copy entire groups of email addresses off of messages like you can in the old version.
The very important feature I use everyday is missing in new update,
I can't re-write 10-15 email addresses again to a new email.
So, not using it until this feature came back,
Hope, this will help !!!
good morning, you can not copy the recipients, to make another email from another date.

Dear Support Team,
Everything looks good but, we are unable to copy the multiple email address from an previous/existing email. Please fix this issue.
