Hi Powershell Experts,

I use the following code without problem

send-MailMessage -SmtpServer $smtp -To "user1@xxx.com.sg", "user2@xxx.com.sg" -From $from -Subject $subject -Body $body -BodyAsHtml

But using variable fails???
$to = "user1@xxx.com.sg", "user2@xxx.com.sg"
send-MailMessage -SmtpServer $smtp -To $to  -From $from -Subject $subject -Body $body -BodyAsHtml

Can help explain where I go wrong?

that should work:
$recipients = "user1@xxx.com.sg", "user2@xxx.com.sg" 
send-MailMessage -SmtpServer $smtp -To $recipients -From $from -Subject $subject -Body $body -BodyAsHtml

Hi sedgwick,

I just tested again and while there is no error, it is still not working correctly as the email is only sent to the first person in $recipients. So for the above case, I receive an email with just

To : user1@xxx.com.sg

user2 does not appear in the To list.

Hi,
can you try this:
$to = @("user1@xxx.com.sg", "user2@xxx.com.sg")

Thx it worked! Does the @() means parameters?

Nope, it means an array of strings (or objects)
