Yes, this is the case.

Thank you, this is really helpful. I changed it in the end to this:


(defun message-send-and-exit-multiple ()
  (interactive)
  (let ((addresses 
         (split-string 
          (message-fetch-field "All")
          "," t)))
    (while addresses
      (let ((address (car addresses)))
        (setq addresses (cdr addresses))
        (message-remove-header "To")
        (message-add-header (format "To: %s" address))
        (if addresses
            (progn (message-send))
          (message-send-and-exit))))))



It makes it a bit easier to interact with BBDB as the addresses are in
the header. It asks about resending, which I was going to switch-off,
but then I realised that this is probably a bad idea; quite easy to
shoot myself in the foot with this function.

Thanks again!

Phil
