I am using MAPI in PDF-eXPLODE as my email sending connection. I would like to just enter the name of a Contact Group (for example: "Finance") into my tag instead of individual email addresses and get PDF-eXPLODE to convert these to email addresses and send it to MS Outlook for emailing out to the recipients in that list. However, I am not successful as PDF-eXPLODE treats the tag:
as a non-email tag and creates an exploded PDF file named Finance.pdf and the process ends. How can I make it recognize that the word "Finance" is indeed an MS Outlook Contact Group and should be emailed? Is it at all possible to send emails to Contact Groups in MS Outlook?
Yes, it is possible to send emails to one or more Contact Groups using MS Outlook as the email connection and the contacts group name in the tag. However you need to be mindful of the following important rules in regards to this specific sending.
<pdfexplode>Grp_Finance</pdfexplode>or if showing more than one group:<pdfexplode>Grp_Finance, Grp_Admin</pdfexplode>
Do not show double quotes around the tag.
