Outlook Send Same Email to Different Recipients | VBA Macro #31

Recipients won’t see who was emailed but that is actually the problem.  The value is knowing who was emailed so customers know if additional follow-up is needed.  Instead you can CC recipients but once someone hits Reply All the conversation can get out of control.  This can create a bigger problem if the email thread is across multiple parties. Sending separate emails creates more value for the customer but how do you do this efficiently and effectively? You could create new emails do a lot of copying and pasting but this isn’t a sustainable process. Good news is there is always a better way with VBA!
