How to send an email to each unique value in a field

i'm running a query as a job in SQL Server 2005.  this query will send an html report to customers and show all of their pending orders.

i have a field for customer number (CustomerNo)
each customer only has one email address.
but the customer may have several orders and they should receive only 1 email with all orders on it.

how do i do the iteration?
USE [Database]
GO
IF (OBJECT_ID('#tmpEmailStatus') IS NOT NULL)
DROP TABLE #tmpEmailStatus

ok, i have a partial solution.  

i created a view that has a list of unique customer number, email address and use a CURSOR to iterate through it.

the only thing missing is how to SELECT only the records where CustomerNo is equal to the current record that the cursor is pointing to.

do i need a second cursor to point to the customer number or can i select the customer number column from the current cursor?
USE [Database]
GO
 
DECLARE @EmailRecipient VARCHAR(50);

ok, i got it.

i figured out how to use the current cursor, assign both the current customer number and email address to variables, and then send one email to each customer.
USE [Database]
