Hi, when reply on a email in OWA (Exchange 2003) only the dispaly name is "transfered" to the reply window, in the main OWA window i can see the display name and email address, but when reply i can only see the display name, but when doubleclikk or enter properties on the display name the email address field is blank and i cant send the mail. This happens only on mail received from outside users, not from inside users.

But the problem is that there isnt possible to send the mail since there isnt any e-mail address in the properites, BUT the displayname is underlined and the contact is in the contacts, but it isnt possible to send the mail when reply on it.
