All previous versions of outlook have acted like this:
You pick a name in the address book like John Johnson, you do a copy and paste it down in the message and you get John Johnson. Version 2010 seems to think I want to copy John Johnson and paste John Johnson <JohnJohnson@xyz.com>.
I just want the name and the past function to act has it always has, how do I turn this non helpful feature off!

Thanks
John

The easiest solution is to paste the contact's name as Plain Text (Paste > Paste Special > Unformatted Text).
It will only paste the name.
