How to Quickly Export the Recipients of Multiple Outlook Emails to an Excel Worksheet

Sometimes, you may want to export the recipients of multiple Outlook emails to an Excel worksheet. In comparison to using inbuilt “Export” tool, it is suggested for you to utilize the method introduced in this article. It is much more convenient.

When you receive some emails which are not only sent to you but also to multiple other recipients, you may want to export these recipients. In general, you can use the internal “Export” feature in Outlook. But it is a bit tedious and cumbersome. For instance, it only allows you to process all emails in a folder instead of selected emails. Therefore, here we’ll teach you another way, which uses VBA code.

Export All Recipients of Multiple Emails to an Excel Worksheet

    Dim objDictionary As Object
    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim objRecipient As Outlook.Recipient
    Dim strEmailAddress, strName As String
    Dim objExcelApp As Excel.Application
    Dim objExcelWorkbook As Excel.Workbook
    Dim objExcelWorksheet As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim varEmailAddresses As Variant
    Dim nLastRow As Integer
    Set objSelection = Outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
    If Not (objSelection Is Nothing) Then
       'Use Dictionary to avoid duplicates
       Set objDictionary = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
       For Each objItem In objSelection
           If TypeOf objItem Is MailItem Then
              Set objMail = objItem
              For Each objRecipient In objMail.Recipients
                  If objRecipient <> Session.CurrentUser Then
                     strEmailAddress = objRecipient.Address
                     If objDictionary.Exists(strEmailAddress) Then
                        objDictionary.Item(strEmailAddress) = objDictionary.Item(strEmailAddress) + 1
                        objDictionary.Add strEmailAddress, 1
                     End If
                  End If
          End If
      Set objExcelApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
      objExcelApp.Visible = True
      Set objExcelWorkbook = objExcelApp.Workbooks.Add
      Set objExcelWorksheet = objExcelWorkbook.Sheets(1)
      With objExcelWorksheet
           .Cells(1, 1) = "Name"
           .Cells(1, 1).Font.Bold = True
           .Cells(1, 2) = "Email Address"
           .Cells(1, 2).Font.Bold = True
      End With

      varEmailAddresses = objDictionary.Keys
      For i = LBound(varEmailAddresses) To UBound(varEmailAddresses)
          nLastRow = objExcelWorksheet.Range("A" & objExcelWorksheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
          strName = Split(varEmailAddresses(i), "@")(0)
          strName = UCase(Left(strName, 1)) & LCase(Right(strName, Len(strName) - 1))
          With objExcelWorksheet
              .Cells(nLastRow, 1) = strName
              .Cells(nLastRow, 2) = varEmailAddresses(i)
          End With
