How do you send a list on email

How do you send a list on email

Hi There,

I am using a foreach loop, how can I use the items to send in one email instead of send an email for each item?


RE: How do you send a list on email

Since you ask that general, assume you have this (pseudo code):

foreach(item in items) sendmail(item); 

If you don't want to send a mail per item, then the simple solution is not to do it in the loop, but after the loop.

foreach(item in items) addtomailbody(item);

So you have to define a variable for the mailbody, in which you add line for line, paragraph for paragraph, and finally just send this whole text once.

If you have such a problem with simple program flow, you shouldn't do programming. Seriously.

Bye, Olaf.
