Goal

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

As per <Note: 307577.1> the following is mentioned:
 
" 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 is no longer supported in 11.5.10 or Release 12. Refer to <Note: 333719.1> 11.5.10: Not Able To Send Multiple E-Mails Upon Approval Of Purchase Order for details. "
 
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?
