When Communicating PO's To Suppliers, is it Possible to Communicate them to Multiple Email Adresses? (Doc ID 1521660.1)

Does the E-mail PO functionality allow sending to more than one e-mail address?

Before 11.5.10, the E-mail Notification supports multiple E-mail addresses as long as the combined addresses list is no longer than 60 characters. The E-mail addresses need to be separated by commas. As a workaround the supplier may setup a distribution list address, including all the single E-mail addresses that would receive the E-mail.
The use of commas to separate multiple addresses was initially no longer supported in 11.5.10 or Release 12.
Three possible workarounds have been offered, but none of them meets the requirements:

1. Create and use a e-mail distribution list defined by your electronic mail system.
2. Use the PO: Secondary Email address profile option as a second e-mail destination.
3. If using the PDF option* for PO Output Format there is another workaround. By navigating to PO Summary (query a PO) and then go to Tools > Communicate there is an option to email a purchase order again. Any valid email address can be used (one email address at a time).

Is it possible when communicating PO's to suppliers to mail them to multiple email addresses in one go? For instance by entering comma separated email addresses?
