Outlook 2003 lists Fax numbers as email addresses.

Hi All,

My Outlook 2003 address book lists my contacts Fax numbers as email addresses if they do not have email addresses.

For some reason I get two contacts listed .....one with the email address and one with the Fax number as email.

Attempts to send to many reciepients result in mail being sent to those with email addresses but the ones with Fax #'s still get an email sent to them which obviously bounces.

With over 700 contacts this is a pain......

Any idea why this duplicate entry has happened?

I am not sure if that issue was fixed in OL 2003..

But for other versions , it is by design
