Copy (only the) E-Mail Address in OS X

Sometimes when you are in OS X and you copy and paste an EMail address from Mail.app you get something like:

Jeffrey Jackson <username@domain.com>

You only wanted the email address, not this. We can fix that. Close Mail and open Terminal.

defaults write com.apple.mail AddressesIncludeNameOnPasteboard -bool NO

Now open mail and try again you should just get the email address:


Now go email someone.

Say Thanks

thanks for the end however i have some other query and maybe there's a terminal short cut as well. as an example if I copy a e mail address from a frame text inside the electronic mail and beyond it i get that mailto: (and then the mail ) again very stressful how am i able to get rid of the mailtoā€¯ alternative
