  • You can do it by calling Office.diagnostics object, but why would you show something different between Outlook and OWA?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a problem with adding custom mail address format to To recipients list. My format is working fine with OWA,OWA app for Android and Ipad. But coming to Outllook 2013 desktop client my custom email address is added to the "To" recipients list. But when i click on "Send" button "Check Names" popup window displaying and says.."Microsoft outlook doesn't recognize .XXXX....Select the address to use".

    I dodn`t know why i am getting this error. Same custom mail address formats are working fine in other clients except desktop outlook client.Please check the attachment for reference.

    Why i am getting this error?Can i skip this validation in desktop client?

  • Hi Kiran,

    Since the orignal issues was resolved, I closed this thread temporarily.

    Have you fix the popup issue now? If not I suggest that you reopen a new thread to get more effective response.
