Try for example:

Sub sendamail()
Dim str As String

    str = InputBox("Identify any extra recipients", "Recipient Entry")
    With Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        .Body = "Mail Body" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "And it all starts here"
        .To = "fred@fred.com, doris@doris.com"
        If str <> "" Then .To = .To & "," & str
        .Display
    End With
    
End Sub

Open in new window

The same thing from a different application is as follows:

Sub sendamail()
Dim str As String
Dim olkApp As Object

    str = InputBox("Identify any extra recipients", "Recipient Entry")
    Set olkApp = CreateObject("outlook.application")
    With olkApp.CreateItem(0)
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        .Body = "Mail Body" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "And it all starts here"
        .To = "fred@fred.com, doris@doris.com"
        If str <> "" Then .To = .To & "," & str
        .Display
    End With
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Note replacing .display with .send will simply send the email ... if that is required in the application.
