Email list from Access to Outlook: How?

P: n/a
This must be a common operation, but I have searched this newsgroup
and have wrestled with the help messages, and I seem to need help with
this simple task.
I have an Access 2000 database which, via a query, can
generate a list of e-mail addresses. I can export this list, if
necessary. There may be hundreds of names in this list.
Now, I want to send e-mail to everyone on this list. I can
copy the list onto the clipboard (all 300 names!) and jam it into the
Outlook address field (Ugh!), but what I really want is for Outlook to
simply send the email to everyone on the list.
Can someone point me to a FAQ or tutorial on how to get
Outlook to send the email to everyone on the Access-generated list? I
have figured out how to populate an Outlook address book with this
list, but once again, I don't want to put all 300 names from the
address book into the email address.
Thanks very much. Pete Brady

See the Outlook specific links at the Access Email FAQ at my website.
