Thread: Copying and pasting emails from outlook

    Default Copying and pasting emails from outlook

    I have Windows 7 and am using Windows Live Mail.

    We have a master excel vendor list which I turn into a separtae excel
    spreadsheet with the particular vendors for that project. With outlook I was
    able to copy and paste the email address column for that spreadsheet in the
    BCC line and send with no problem.

    When I now try it with Windows Mail Live, it is unable to send because "one
    or more of the receipients does not have an email address. All email
    addresses should be valid since I can send the same email from Outlook on
    another computer. Any ideas?

    Can you give us an example of what actually gets pasted into the
    BCC line in Windows Live Mail?

    A guess would be delimination between addresses . . . . . when you paste the
    list in BCC: do they have semicolons or commas between them? Outlook may
    have handled this differently.

    I'm not sure I know what you mean...

    I copy the whole column that contains the contact's email addresses. When
    they get pasted into the bcc line, it lists all email addresses without a
    colon in between. I don't know if it makes a difference but not all row of
    contacts contacin an email address so when copied over it makes the whole bcc
    box much larger becuase the email addresses get stacked one on top of the
    other, including empty spaces.

    Just saw your other post - they must have a semicolon or comma between them
    .. . . . if you hover your mouse over the blank BCC: line it tells you that.

    Nope, still not working. I even tried adding a semi colon to each cell
    containging an email address to no avail. I have to go into the list of
    about 100 emails and delete the space in between emails, then add a semi
    colon then hit send then do the same with the next line.

    Not happening, this takes too long.

    Manually type in 2 - 3 of them and notice the format - I believe it requires
    a semicolon and a space between each:

    email1; email2; email3;

    The only other thing I can suggest is to create a mail category (formerly
    "mail group") with these e-addresses - a little work up front but you can
    mail from the category in the future.
