Default sending mail to an outlook group via vbs

i have been able to send an email via vbs and i now want to send it to several people at once..but instead of adding all their names to my script, i tried sending it to a group i had created in outllook hich contained their email addresses.
mymails were not delivered.
how can i achieve this please?.
for example i have a group called #myfriends@mycompany.com which contains about 30 email addressses.
i expect that if i send an email to that address, it should be send to all 30 people.

I am not sure how to do this in Outlook, but you can create a table with email addresses in your database, and then assign the email addresses to various groups. Then when you send email, query the table for people in that group, and attach them to the To: line using the proper syntax.

You can write a script that gets all your email addresses from Outlook and populates the table. Hmmmm, if you can do that, you can do what you want to do originally.

Try Microsoft "Windows 2000 Scripting Guide," THE best book on Windows scripting ever. (Sorry Wrox)
