I think we still have a missconception here.
Kontact has an extra field called "Post Office Box",
I am attaching a screenshot of the (sub)dialog for entering
the address information for illustration.

Would it be fine with you to add an extra field for <pobox> information?
Could you make use of it in Outlook and thus display it?
Otherwise we could just add the tag and Toltec ignores it, 
which would be a nondesirable solution, but at least Kontact to Kontact
does not lose the information anymore.
