To display the standard Microsoft Mail Address screen and allow the user to add or remove recipients to the selected message specified by "messageRef", use the following syntax:

   msmail(DisplayAddressScreen, messageRef) => anyRecipients

With Mail version 3.00 an additional optional argument ("title") is available:

   msmail(DisplayAddressScreen, messageRef[, title]) => anyRecipients


If there are any recipients in the new address, "anyRecipients" is "true". If the recipient list is empty, anyRecipients is "false". To get a list of the recipients, use GetRecipients.

"messageRef" is a reference to a selected message obtained by making a call to the Microsoft Mail function using a parameter (such as GetMessageList or CreateMessage) that returns a message reference.

"title" is a name for the address window. If none is specified, then the default of "Address Mail" is displayed.

This information is taken from the "Microsoft Mail HyperCard Interface Documentation."
