I Am Having Issues Sending An E-Mail Using Windows Live Mail 2011 (Latest Version) And I Do Not Know Why?

Hello. I have a question to ask you.

I am trying to send an e-mail to someone using Windows Live Mail 2011 (WLM 2011; version: Build 15.4.3538.0513) on my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit operating system. When I click on the "send" button on the WLM 2011 interface, I receive the following two (2) WLM 2011 messages in succession. Please see the following two (2) screen clippings  in order embedded at the bottom of this comment for better understanding and clarity. I do not know what is going on?

As an implied inference I am getting from both these WLM 2011 messages, it appears in my opinion the e-mail address I am trying to send is not part of my e-mail contacts??? I may be wrong. I have an e-mail address of someone where it is my FIRST time I am sending an e-mail TO him. However, I have received ONLY ONE e-mail from him earlier today. Honestly I can recall, I have sent MANY e-mails for the FIRST time to many users where I never have received any message of sorts from the same e-mail sender... ...or any issue all together by sending a message from WLM 2011 to date.    

Please provide me an answer and solution to this issue. Also, please indicate how I cannot have this issue ever happen again.  

Please provide your own detailed facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links.

DO NOT USE LMGTFY.com or similar-like web links in your reply. I consider its use very unprofessional for EE experts. If you do, you will not get acknowledged and receive no credit.

Please reply.

Thank you!

It looks like you put the email address in the 'Name' entry instead of the email entry.

@ DaveBaldwin:

Hello. Nice to see you again. Thank you for your comment.

Actually, your response logically did not happen that way for me. I understand your reasoning. However, your concept regarding e-mail addresses and the entering the the information into the correct entry made me recheck very carefully what I typed in the "To:" (without the quotes) again of the e-mail address. I found that I forgot the ".com" (without the quotes) domain name at the end of the domain. Dah! (I'm dumb! A dumb mistake!)  Once I finished it with the ".com" (without the quotes), I was able to send it!

Question closed since now answered with solution.

Again, thank you!

Hello again.

Even though I finally found it, I am still giving you the full points since I followed your concept (lead) of rechecking my steps. It was a dumb mistake on my part!

You will get full points and the "Accepted Solution" title.

Again, thank you!

You're welcome.  Your comment explains what I was seeing above though.  Without the '.com' part, it doesn't validate as an email address which was why it was responding as though you entered a name.
