    Can I edit Contacts to only show name and not email address

    When sending messages to people in my contact list it automatically puts
    there entire email address. I used to used Outlook 2003 and it just put
    there name and did not show others email. I tried to see if there was a way
    to edit contacts to just show name and not full name and email there is no
    option as there was in Outlook. Any suggestions>

    Hi Jeanine,

    To not have the email address show for your contacts, you can use Bcc when sending the email. Just have your email address in the To: field and add the contacts in the Bcc: field. They will only see your email address and their names. This will show you how to get Bcc: in Windows Mail.

    Windows Mail - Bcc

    Hope this helps you,
    Shawn
