In Word, create a document and type in some text (your name would do fine).

Write a macro which will create a message in Outlook composed of the text in your document and send it to:

  • The person whose email address you pass in as an argument (the TO address); and
  • Optionally, the person whose email address you pass in as an optional argument (the CC address).

You will need to reference the Microsoft Outlook application first

Now write another macro which works in exactly the same way, but to which you can pass as many CC addresses as you want (including none at all) using ParamArray.

Save this document as Document which emails itself.doc, then close it down.
