How send email using first record in query

I have this code in the onload event of a form.  When the form is loaded an email is automatically send to recipients that come from a query.  But now I only want ONE email to be send per unique InvoiceN.  How does this code have to be changed to do this?

Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim strSQL As String
   Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
   Dim strEmail As String, strSubject As String, Customer As String, InvoiceN As String, strToAddress As String, ToEmail As String

   strSubject = "The afore mentioned customer's contract is up for renewal. Please arrange to send the invoice."
   Set rs = CurrentDb.QueryDefs("qryFindRecordsForAutoEmail").OpenRecordset

   While Not rs.EOF

        If IsNull(rs!ccEmpEmailAddresses) Or IsNull(rs!EmailAddress) Then
       
            MsgBox "Customer " & rs!Customer & ", Record ID " & rs!ID & ", is missing either the Email Address or the c/c Email Address!"

        Else
            Customer = rs!Customer
            InvoiceN = rs!InvoiceN
            strEmail = rs!ccEmpEmailAddresses
            ToEmail = rs!EmailAddress
            strToAddress = rs!ccEmpEmailAddresses
           
            DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , ToEmail, strToAddress, , strSubject, "Customer: " & [Customer] & " - Invoice Number: " & [InvoiceN], False
           
            rs.Edit
            rs![EmailReminderSent] = True
            rs![EmailSentDate] = Date
            rs.Update
        End If

        rs.MoveNext
    Wend
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing

End Sub

You need to iterate through the recordset, creating a separate email for each member.  Here is some code that does this, using the more reliable Automation method:

Public Sub EMailAllContacts()

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

   Dim dbs As DAO.Database
   Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
   Dim appOutlook As Outlook.Application
   Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem
   Dim strEmail As String
   
   Set dbs = CurrentDb
   Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("qryContacts")
   Set appOutlook = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
   
   Do While Not rst.EOF
      strEmail = Nz(rst![EmailName])
      If strEmail <> "" Then
         'Create email
         Set msg = appOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
         msg.To = strEmail
         msg.Subject = "Subject"
         msg.Body = "Message"
         
         'Comment out next line and uncomment Send line
         'to send automatically
         msg.Display
         'msg.Send
      End If
      rst.MoveNext
   Loop
   
ErrorHandlerExit:
   rst.Close
   Set rst = Nothing
   Set appOutlook = Nothing
   Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:
   'Outlook is not running; open Outlook with CreateObject
   If Err.Number = 429 Then
      Set appOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
      Resume Next
   Else
      MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number _
         & " in EMailAllContacts procedure" _
         & "; Description: " & Err.Description
      Resume ErrorHandlerExit
   End If

End Sub
