Here is sample code I have that creates a mail item from a template.

With regards to adding recipients, see the example on how you add them. In your scenario I would imagine creating a recordset to iterate thru all emails and adding them to the recipients list.

Now this uses outlook automation obviously but from A2003 you get the security message. You can get rid of this by installing click-yes (freebie software) or possibly use redemption, which works like outlook automation, I just dont know if it also creates from templates

If u wanted to override the default subject and message body, you can do this (after the createitem call)

    objEmailMessage.Subject = "Subject Goes Here"
    objEmailMessage.Body = "Body Here"

   

Public Sub SendOXPMail()
 
    Dim objOutlook As Object
    Dim objEmailMessage As Object
    
    
    On Error GoTo SendError
    
    'Create outlook objects
    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    
    'Specify template here
    Set objEmailMessage = objOutlook.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\mytemplate.oft")
    
    'Set the addresses here
    objEmailMessage.Recipients.Add "fred@flintstone.com"
    objEmailMessage.Recipients.Add "wilma@flintstone.com"
    
    
    'TO DISPLAY OR SEND DELETE OR COMMENT APPROPRIATELY
    'Display email
    objEmailMessage.Display
    
    'Send it!
    'objEmailMessage.Send
    
SendError:
    If err.Number <> 0 Then MsgBox err.Description
    On Error Resume Next
    Set objEmailMessage = Nothing
    Set objOutlook = Nothing
End Sub
