Getting email addresses instead of names in Outlook

Hi,

I see the internal staff in my organization as names instead of emailaddresses when we have email conversations. What is the easiest way of extracting the "real" emailaddress? Need it for doing e.g., doodle surveys.

See: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=567086&page=684 - would need to be run by someone managing your AD / Exchange.

If you are not an System Administrator then you can only double click that users name in your email address, a property window will open and then click on E-mail Addresses tab, under that you can see for example as SMTP:Abc.Xyz@example.com ( this is the exact email address of that user).

Thanks for your replies.

Yes, I know the right-click properties functionality, but that takes too much time when there is a receiver list of 50 addresses (and I'm looking for a solution to do it for several emails). I need something working for multiple addresses.

Adding things on the server side isn't happening. I need a client-side solution - 10 000 ppl in this organization and the chances I'll get my hold on the exchange server aren't really huge ;)

@ShrCol, thanks, but that article shows how to import from a directory, not from an email.

If that Email addresses are saved in your contact list then you can follow below simple steps.

To import your contacts from Outlook (a .csv file), follow these simple steps:

1.      From the Outlook main menu, select File > Import and Export. This will take you to Outlook's "Import and Export" Wizard.
2.      Select Export to a file and then click Next.
3.      Select Comma Separated Values (Windows) and then click Next.
4.      Choose to export from the Contacts folder and then click Next.
5.      Type a file name (ex: "mycontactlist") and click Browse to locate the directory where you want to place the exported file. Then click OK to close the "Browse" dialog box.
6.      Click Next, and then Finish. The new CSV file should now be in the location that you indicated.
