Another day, another Lazy Programmer macro. This one is tweaked (or chopped) from Add a Category to Contacts in a Contact Group, only instead of looking up a contact and adding a category to it, I create a new message to the address. Yes, I could have done this without using that macro, but I wouldn't be a lazy programmer if I wrote macros from scratch.
To mail merge to contact groups (i.e. send the same email message to 20 groups, 1 message per group) see Mail Merge to Contact Gropups
While this macro is not all that practical as currently written, you could use a template or UserForm to add the subject and message body. Heck, you could even use clipboard contents for the message body.
Note: As written, this macro opens a new message on screen, one for each member of the Contact group. Test it with a small Contact group (DL)!
Don't forget to get the GetCurrentItem function from Work with open item or selected item
Sub Merge_to_Group() Dim o_list As Object Dim objMsg As MailItem ' select or open the distribution list ' you need the GetCurrentItem function from ' http://slipstick.me/e8mio Set o_list = GetCurrentItem() For i = 1 To o_list.MemberCount Set objMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) With objMsg .To = o_list.GetMember(i).Address .Subject = "Test Subject" .Body = "Message Text" ' use .display for testing ' .send to send the messages automatically .Display End With Set objMsg = Nothing Next End Sub
