Hi

I want to make a list of email-adresses I frequently use in AppleScript, select one of them to create an email to the selected Address.

I've gotten pretty far, but I get this error message in the Script Editor.
Fehler in der AppleEvent-Routine." number -10000

What's wrong with my code?

Thanks!
tell application "Mail"
	set myList to {"email1@gmx.net", "email2@gmail.com", "email3@hotmail.com"}
	choose from list myList
	set theMessage to make new outgoing message with properties {visible:true}
	tell theMessage
		make new to recipient at end of to recipients with properties {address:myList}
	end tell
end tell

Open in new window

	tell theMessage
		make new to recipient at end of to recipients with properties {address:toAddress}
	end tell

You need to save the value chosen from the list in a variable, as a string.
Then you just simply use it in the address property.
Good luck!
