To get the correct email addresses use 
InternetAddress class and its method getAddress().

also u get an array of adresses when u use the above
method.so u have to read the array and extract
addresses from each address u get.

U can rewrite your code like this:
//obtain an array of the addresses
Address [] to = miMessage.getRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO);

//this would give u the first email addres in the "To" header field as a string
String dir = ((InternetAddress)to[0]).getAddress();

u can use StringBuffer object to retrieve all the addresses as string from the array.
like this:

StringBuffer strBuf = new StringBuffer(((InternetAddress)to[0]).getAddress());
for (int i = 1; i < to.length; i++)
strBuf.append(", ").append(((InternetAddress)to[i]).getAddress());

I hope that would help u.
