Outlook 2007 wont send emails when using contacts

If i select people in my contacts to send out an email, it wont send. It just 
gives me a parameter error. But, if i manually type the same email, it will 
work. I looked in the contacts, and the email addresses are correct. I did 
notice, however, that when i select a contact, outlook puts ' ' around the 
addresses. When i removed the '  ' it works. Could this be the issues? If so, 
how do i fix this?

You didn't specify the method used for recipient selection.
How were these Contacts created?
Are their email addresses resolved?

The used to be associated with an exchange server email account, but now 
we've moved over to godaddy. So, i backed up and created the pst file, but 
when imported, the contacts are there but doesnt work if i click on one and 
try to email them. It just gets stuck in the outbox with errors. The errors 
aren't specific. But if i open the email in the outbox, delete the email 
address and then type it manually, it works.

Well i got it working. I exported contacts to excel and viewed the contact 
list. Every email address had ' before the address, so i meticulously removed 
that from every email. Also, i had to remove the ' from every email type as 
well. But either way, it was a pain, but at least it works.

Here is the lesson you should have learned: You never transfer Outlook data 
using export and import. Doing so causes just this kind of problem.
Lesson 2: provide this information when you ask others for help instead of 
expecting them to figure out what you did wrong.

Outlook 2003 and "Check Names"

When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl- k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions". The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could search by first name (or partial first name)...
