Does anyone know about any macros or add-ins that could potentially help with this situation:

You receive an email that's been sent to a large number of people, including distribution lists. You realize that Bob Smith should see this email, but you can't easily see whether he was in the To or Cc line. So, you copy all the addresses in the To/Cc lines, open up notepad and paste, and then ctrl-F your way through the list looking for Bob's address. This method doesn't help with distribution lists.
 
A macro could popup the recipients into a dialog box or into a new message body to save you the copy & paste step- but doesn't Forward list all of the names in the header block? Getting members of Exchange DLs is a bit tougher but can be done using a macro.

You're quite lucky... in the past, I did all that and much more in my own Outlook environment.
I attach 3 modules for you. Add them in your Outlook.

I added 1 icon in the ribbon / QAT but you will run the different macro's with a combination of Ctrl and/of Shift and/or Alt.
Just while clicking the macro icon, press the combination of keys that you desire.

For example, select an email and run the macro to get the addresses and copy to the clipboard. You can then paste in Notepad++ or similar.
Or copy the addresses from an email, and apply to a different email in 1 go.

Please give feedback on this as I use it from time to time but I did not test it extensively. Other remarks and improvements are appreciated too.

Hi Scharznavy, were you able to have a look at this code and experiment a bit ?
 
Hi Wigi. I'm sorry for the late response. I have not had time to try this until today. The winter makes my work a little slower....

I have tried your modules. When I run the macro I get an error message that says "Run-time error '424': Object Required". And when I choose Debug it takes me to line 96 in Module 1, the line is "Set objMsg = GetCurrentItem_Save_Att".

I do not know how to code, but I tried to change with a few variations... GetCurrentItem, GetCurrentItem(), and those did not work.

I really thank you for replying to my original post. I will try to keep researching to see if I can figure out the issue.
