" Instead of Email Recipient Names in Outlook 2003

Oftentimes when I send an email in Outlook 2003, the email recipient's name appears as a quotation mark rather than the recipient's name appearing. I must fix this by highlighting the quotation mark, selecting " properties" , deleting the quotation mark, replacing it with the recipient's name, and then saving the message. I have created no rules that would cause this. Any suggestions?

Suggest posting some information. We have no clue how you are selecting the recipient. Seems like something we should know. This is not an Outlook problem.Russ Valentine

Thank you. As an example, yesterday I wanted to send a new email that followed up on a prior email I had sent to a client of mine. I thus selected my most recent email to the client, hit reply to all, and then deleted my own name as a recipient of the email I was about to draft. This left my client's name as the sole proposed recipient of the new email. I then composed the new email and hit send. The new email then was transmitted without issue. During this entire process, the client/recipient's email address/name was fully and completely displayed as the " to" recipient. However, after the email was successfully sent, the " sent" copy of this email displayed the recipient as " rather than displaying the email address/name. As a fix, I can then highlight the " in the sent email, select properties, and then manually delete and replace the " with the proper email address/name. But what is causing sent copies of emails to display recipients as " ? My address book has the correct recipient address and name, and I have created no rule that would cause this. Suggestions or thoughts?

So you are selecting the recipient by using " Reply?" Correct? And the email still gets sent correctly, right?

In that case I would suspect the Contact Record for the recipient in question has become corrupt. This can happen if you ever sync Contacts or have ever imported them. Open the Contact Record for the recipient and examine the " Email Display As" field.

None of the Contact records reflect the " or any corruption. To the contrary, each Contact Record " Email Display As" field correctly reflects the contact's name and/or email address, which as mentioned also initially appears in the " to" column of emails until the email is transmitted, at which point the recipient then inexplicably appears as " . Any further thoughts would be much appreciated.

Only other thought is corruption of your autocompletion entries. Try deleting your cache. Suspect there is still more to your story. Are you saying you do not sync your Contacts? Is there anything that is not working or is this a cosmetic issue?Russ Valentine
