This is the second vCard related Outlook quirk that's been reported

I think that's sufficient to start taking some notes on the wiki:


Could you please add some details (perhaps a plain text quote of the entire
vCard, and version/OS information on Outlook)?

Also, as a workaround for Outlook you could perhaps state:

 <span class="post-office-box street-address">P.O. Box 44</span>

Which will put it into both sub-properties of ADR.
