I have a contact in my Outlook 2013 global address list. I would like to copy his email address so I can paste it into another program.

This appears to be strangely difficult. If I open the properties of the contact and go to the E‑mail Addresses tab, I see several email addresses for the contact but no option to copy/paste them.


Half-way through posting the question, I found the answer.

From the contact properties page, click on "Actions". This pops out a small contact info screen. Under the Send Email header, the email address of the contact is shown. Right-click on it and choose Copy.

I accidentally highlighted "Add to Contacts". The "Actions" button is actually next to this.
