FM - Gathering Email Addresses from a Found Set

We are now able to text message our tenants.  However, now my boss wants to be able to send a text message by any Found Set he wants, e.g., all Pizza Places, etc.  So, the usual List() function doesn't seem to apply.  

I'm thinking of a two-step process:  1) Give him a drop down list of the most common found sets, and 2) in case he chooses a found set of his own. have a button called TEXTMSSG that would Loop through and stuff all the text message addresses into a global field and then open up a local Outlook with the global assigned to the TO field.  Is that the most efficient and flexible method?  Thanks.

The looping option is the most common and in fact prior to the advent of the List() function was pretty much the only option.

I like to give credit, even for confirmations, since I like to confirm whether I am using a best practice or not.  Thank you.  P.S. - Personally, I prefer calc fields rather than loops whenever possible because I find the more the moving parts, the more chance for errors.
