But, it is very tedious if there are dozens of recipient names need to be pasted. This article, I will talk about an easy way to solve this job in Outlook.

Sub InsertRecipientNamesToBody() Dim xMailItem As Outlook.MailItem Dim xRecipient As Outlook.Recipient Dim xRecipAddress, xRecipNames, xRecipName, xFilterAddr As String Dim xItems As Outlook.Items Dim i As Integer Dim xFoundContact As Outlook.ContactItem Dim xDoc As Word.Document On Error Resume Next Set xMailItem = Outlook.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem xMailItem.Recipients.ResolveAll For Each xRecipient In xMailItem.Recipients xRecipAddress = xRecipient.Address Set xItems = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts).Items For i = 1 To 3 xFilterAddr = "[Email" & i & "Address] = " & xRecipAddress Set xFoundContact = xItems.Find(xFilterAddr) If Not (xFoundContact Is Nothing) Then xRecipNames = xRecipNames & xFoundContact.FullName & Chr(10) Exit For End If Next If (xFoundContact Is Nothing) Then xRecipName = Split(xRecipAddress, "@")(0) xRecipNames = xRecipNames & xRecipName & Chr(10) End If Next Set xDoc = xMailItem.GetInspector.WordEditor xDoc.Content.InsertAfter xRecipNames Set xMailItem = Nothing Set xRecipient = Nothing Set xItems = Nothing Set xFoundContact = Nothing End Sub
