Outlook Comma Separated Addresses Issue

I have a set of custom forms written in vbscript that are used to manage contacts, quotes, etc and mass email them when needed.  The issue I am having is specific to Outlook 2016.  Upon completion of the vbscript, a comma separated list of email addresses is added to bcc on a new email.  When the email is sent, outlook 2016 will give a bounce back with all of the email addresses listed.  Only the first email appears to go through.  I think this is related to the autocomplete contacts feature in newer versions of outlook.  If I send from outlook 2007, the email goes through without issue.  I need 2016 clients to be able to send these as well.

I'm not sure what other information would be relevant to helping you help me, so please let me know.

Thank you,

Reade

Replace commas with semicolons.

Agree with Alexei, solution should be as simple as using semi-colon as the delimiter between multiple addresses rather than comma.

I think Alexei and Bill are both right.  If that doesn't fix it for you, please post a sample CSV file, OK?
