Hi

I have had an email forwarded to me with a number of valuable contacts in the To: list. Basically it looks like:-

From: Collegue A
To:    Contact 1, Contact 2,.......Contact x
CC:    Contact y, Contact z.

I would like to automatically import these contacts & then send them a generic email on an individual basis.

How's the best way to achieve this?

Hi Cygnus01,

Here's a question I answered previously that shows how to automatically add contacts: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_21413779.html  It'd be easy enough to add a bit more code to send each one a message.  There is a hitch though.  Outlook has some built-in security features that make sending messages from code a bit of a problem.

Cheers!

Cygnus01,

I'll be glad to help, but I need more information.  Do you want to send the generic email as each contact is added?
