Force Mail in 10.6 to only copy e-mail addresses

In Leopard when I copied an email address via the Mail App that’s all that was copied. In Snow Leaopard the person’s name is copied, along with the email address inside of brackets. This change is really annoying in Snow Leopard. Here’s to get back to Leopard goodness.

Quit Mail if it’s running, then enter this command in Terminal:

defaults write AddressesIncludeNameOnPasteboard -bool NO

If you try this and decided you prefer the default version, quit Mail and run this command in Terminal:

defaults delete AddressesIncludeNameOnPasteboard
