When I try to send an email via outlook.com I put in the address then I move to the subject. when I do that the address switches and a semi-colon gets added to the tail end or the address like .com;. trying to fix it by changing my user name and pass word has got stuff screwed up. Any way I can fix this. I tried to go microsoft community but all I get is an error message.

There is nothing to fix.  This is completely normal behavior.  Outlook is putting in the separator character in anticipation of the next e-mail address being typed and that separator character is a semicolon.  If there are no additional e-mail addresses it does nothing.
