In the Windows Task Scheduler, I have set up a task that is triggered by an Application Error event. The task is set to send an email alert. How do I set up the task to send the email to multiple recipients? My intuition is to separate by semicolon and space, but I want confirmation. For example- recipient1@example.com; recipient2@example.com; recipient3@example.com

Easiest way from a script and management perspective is to create a distribution group and use that as the smtp address in the script. From there you can easily add/remove people without having to modify the script every time. Just remove them from the distribution group.

Hi,

I'm not sure about that, but just in case, you can always use group in stead of multiple users?

Regards

Thanks for your suggestions. At this point I am interested in sending it to two pre-existing distribution groups. I will make a new group and add the existing groups as members. This is a simple way to ensure the message is sent to all. Thanks again.
