Email Addresses have < > symbols added which make delivery fail.

Something involving the client's blackberry and the Verizon store just modified all of her contacts. Now all of the email addresses are listed with the full contact name and the email address in between the < > symbols. When the client goes to send an email it fails with an NDR advising the email address is the wrong format.

However, if I go in to each one and erase and then retype the email address, the emails are sent without issue. There are over 5200 contacts.

Outlook 2007, Exchange 2007; all patched.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to automate the changing of these email addresses back to their original formation (without the < >)?

If the contacts exist in Outlook, you can export them to a CSV file, and load them into Excel for a quick search/replace, and then re-import them..  To be safe, import it into a PST before you re-sync it all to the phone, so you know that everything converted and imported/exported correctly.

I think this might actually work. I'll attempt this today or tomorrow. Question - do you know if, when you export to CSV file, does all the info come with it i.e. notes & Bus/Home addresses?
