        if (account.Contacts[0].Email != null) {

            addresses = account.Contacts[0].Email;

            // Loop through the whole list of contacts and their emails


            for (Integer i = 1; i < account.Contacts.size(); i++) {

                if (account.Contacts[i].Email != null) {

                    addresses += ':' + account.Contacts[i].Email;





        String[] toAddresses = addresses.split(':', 0);


        // Sets the paramaters of the email


        email.setSubject( subject );

        email.setToAddresses( toAddresses );

        email.setPlainTextBody( body );


        email.setFileAttachments(new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment[] {efa});// Sends the email


        Messaging.SendEmailResult [] r =

            Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] {email});  


        return null;
