Hi,

the commands in the macro language are not capable of creating random numbers. However through the scripting interface very powerfull languages like VB and even C++ are accessable. The file "random-numbers.vbs" demonstrates how to use a script to generate random numbers and modify the macro based on the outcome. You would need to handle the different parts and the assembling of a new email address in the script and then pass the result on to the macro through the

Code: Select all

iimSet()
command.

You may generate random numbers in Excel (there is such a function in it) and you can use it as an input column in your in your input file for example let column 1 be randomly generated numbers than you can do it as:

...CONTENT={{Col1!}}someaddress{{col2!}}@{{col3}}

here col1 and col 2 should be random columns and col3 maybe your domain name.
