I'd like to get rid formatting specifically, mailto html tags that comes along with email addresses copied directly from outlook when i paste it into the user input field. It looks like its stripped out even when paste first in notepad, copy and then paste but once i hit the resolve button, it spits out this

<A href=""></A>

instead hence, an error saying no exact match was found...

I had tried using this in the v4.master but nothing changed in this case.
