I am trying to select a list of names and file them into a variable. I understand the concept behind lists, arrays and whatnot, but sure how to apply here.<BR><BR>// code to select names<BR>str = "SELECT * FROM contacts_ext" <BR><BR>cmd = New OleDbCommand( str, conn )<BR><BR>conn.Open() <BR> extNames = cmd.ExecuteQuery()<BR>conn.Close()<BR><BR>// fill the variable<BR>Dim mail As New MailMessage<BR>mail.From = "info@mysite.com"<BR>mail.To = mailto (???)
