    Hello,

    By default Microsoft Outlook uses semi-colons ";" instead of commas "," to separate email addresses when composing an email.

    To allow the use of commas like most other email programs please follow these steps :

    First, go to the Tools menu and select Options :

    Then click the Email Options button, followed by clicking the and the Advanced E-Mail Options button :

    Last, check the box for Allow comma as address separator :

    Click OK a few times to close out the options windows and you are done!
