The Recipients object contains Recipient objects.

Using the Recipients Object

Use the Recipients property to return the Recipients object of an AppointmentItem, JournalItem, MailItem, MeetingItem or TaskItem object.

Use the Add method to create a new Recipient object and add it to the Recipients object. The Type property of a new Recipient object is set to the default for the associated AppointmentItem, JournalItem, MailItem or TaskItem object and must be reset to indicate another recipient type.

The following example creates a new MailItem object and adds Jon Grande as the recipient using the default type ("To").

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add ("Jon Grande")

The following example creates the same MailItem object as the preceding example, and then changes the type of the Recipient object from the default ("To") to CC.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add ("Jon Grande")
myRecipient.Type = olCC

Use Recipients(index), where index is the name or index number, to return a single Recipient object.
