'If you want to send a message to more than one person or copy or blind

maildoc.sendto = Recipient
maildoc.CopyTo = ccRecipient
maildoc.BlindCopyTo = bccRecipient

'Also for multiple email addresses you just set MailDoc.sendto to an array
of variants each of which will receive the message. So

Dim recip(25) As Variant
recip(0) = "emailaddress1"
recip(1) = "emailaddress2" e.t.c

maildoc.sendto = recip
(End of Quote)


I need to send an e-mail content from EXCEL through Lotus Notes.
However, instead of creating a new e-mail message, it should be
forwarding a message with some additional data in the body. This data
would come from a range selection in EXCEL.
