Recipients object (Outlook)
Contains a collection of Recipient objects for an Outlook item.
Use the Add method to create a new Recipient object and add it to the Recipients object. The Type property of a new Recipient object is set to the default for the associated AppointmentItem, JournalItem, MailItem, or TaskItem object and must be reset to indicate another recipient type.
Use Recipients (index), where index is the name or index number, to return a single Recipient object. The name can be a string representing the display name, the alias, or the full SMTP email address of the recipient.
The following example creates a new MailItem object and adds Jon Grande as the recipient using the default type ("To").
Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add ("Jon Grande")
The following example creates the same MailItem object as the preceding example, and then changes the type of the Recipient object from the default ("To") to CC.
Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add ("Jon Grande") myRecipient.Type = olCC
