I suspect there are easier ways to do this in Outlook.  I don't use Outlook but this sounds unduly cumbersome.  If I open the message properties in Windows Live Mail and look at the information in the details tab, I find the e-mail address, written properly and I can copy it to the clipboard. 


Can you do the equivalent in Outlook or Thunderbird?

How to find email addresses?.

First things first, activate your view pane with F8. You'll need to keep it activated at least whenever you want to get any email address.

Ok, ready? Here we go.

Open your Notepad
Paste the email address. It should be something like john.doe@...

After editing what you've pasted, copy it again with CTRL+A CTRL+C and you finally should have the email address, now in its original form, ready to be pasted somewhere else.
