    Hey,

    When you send an e-mail or receive one from outlook, by default it looks for the person in your contacts and puts the display name up instead.

    But when reading the e-mail it displays

    John Doe [mailto:[email protected]]
    To: Jane Doe

    How do you get rid of the mailto:etc,etc ??? I would prefer a hyperlink instead of the mailto because then it reveals the person's e-mail address.

    I know you could just hover over it or click on the hyperlink to find out the e-mail, but I'm just asking for the purpose of printing. I don't want my e-mail address shown in a long stream of E-mail send's and replies between a friend when I print it.

    If there is a setting in Outlook to turn this off, please let me know, I fooled around with everything and I cant get it to work.

    - Drew

    Under "tools/options/prefrences/e-mail options/advanced e-mail options " You can select "automatic name checking" which I think will convert the mailto to a name if it is in the global address or contacts list. I don't know what that does to people you send to I would think it depends on their setting...
