Send Emails through Outlook using Email Addresses from Excel and text from Word

Add to Favorites
This macro allows you to send an email to a list of recipients through excel. The email will be sent through Outlook and the list of recipients is in excel. The message or body of the email is a word document located anywhere on your computer. The entire macro is run through excel and the email addresses used are listed in excel.

When you run the macro, you will select a word document from your computer to be the body of the email and then from there, the macro will send an email through Outlook to all emails listed in excel. The emails MUST be listed vertically; they must be in individual cells but only in one column, going up and down.

You need two defined names for this macro to work:

subjectcell will be the name of the cell that contains the title of the email.

tolist should be the name of the first cell in a column where the email addresses are located.           This cell should be the first email address in a vertical list with all other emails listed           below that one in the column.
