As a software developer that must account for project time, I am required to send in daily emails to 3 senior members of our development team.
So that I will not forget, I set up a daily task for this to launch a new email before I go home every day.
Using Command-line switches for Outlook 2013, I was able to specify the argument using a single email address as the argument in the list, the task works fine:
If you cannot see the argument text, it is:
/c ipm.note /m email@example.com&subject=Daily%20Log
One email address works fine, but I need to include the email to 3 people - not 1.
So, I edited the argument to be as follows:
/c ipm.note /m firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org&subject=Daily%20Log
If I try running that, I get an invalid argument message:
I read up on how to create a Group Distribution List, and I added that to Outlook's Contacts section:
Then, I edited my Task's argument to use this group:
/c ipm.note /m DailyLogGroup&subject=Daily%20Log
This works, but the result is not my Distribution Group, but rather just the text in the address field.
