Are the names in the list  the SP users?
If not where are you storing the email  id?

As I understand, you do not store email addresses in the SharePoint list?
You want client email application (Outlook) to retrieve email address from it's own contact list by recipient name? Then try to create calculated column in SharePoint, write formula to calculate values like this: mailto:Full Name. SharePoint will highlight the link. When you click it browser will pass recipient name to Outlook and Outlook will resolve contact by name.
If this solution does not fit your needs try some third-party emailing solutions for SharePoint like one described here: www.enovapoint.com/.../ .
