comment Why won't my list crawl when Reindex site is clicked in SharePoint Online?
You may need to issue a ticket with support then to see if Microsoft can do this for you. I am just stating that with this particular error an IISRESET with our on-premise farm corrected the issue immediately.

I was able to create a workflow variable, go into the string builder and do a "Lookup for String" which allowed me to extract the information I needed. This ended up with the same user mismatch though. So the act of looking up the user in either case is still not working. I have proposed this as the answer and awarded you with the bounty since it was about to expire.

I am not following. I have taken a screenshot (preview.tinyurl.com/l7uu756) of the lookup that I am seeing in designer and do not see an option to just use the id of the user and then use their email address. Am I missing a step?

Thanks for responding @jont . The article that explains how to disable NETBIOS names (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/…) warns that "If the NetBIOS name of any domain with which you are synchronizing differs from its fully-qualified domain name, you must enable NetBIOS domain names...". This is the case for us. We have somedomain.com as the FQDN and in SharePoint it is just somedomain\username. Make sense? So this option may cause more harm than good in our scenario.

Running both of those cmdlets did not resolve the issue.

We are trying to get the user's email address as it is placed into a Email action in the workflow. So the ID doesn't help in this case. I need their Email Address and their Display Name.
