If "Recipient name [E-mail]" is appearing under the same column, then you have to edit individual contact.
If not, right-click on the bar that says [Full name], [Company], etc... and click on Customize Current View > Fields > and remove the Email tag. Hope this helps... since I'm testing it out from Outlook2K3.

Thanks for looking at this. i'm not able to edit it out of the records. it only shows when the user sends email from the contacts. the user are distressed that the recipients name always shows [E-mail] after it. and that is sent to the recipient that way. i've exported the contacts out to a .cvs to try to find the field that holds that info. the only thing i can find is the SMTP field and when i exclude that, it removes the email address completely. Maybe the way it was exported has something to do with this.
