Removing users from an assigned to field before sending notification.

Hello Community,  I've got a question for you.

I've got an issue tracker type list. i would like to send an email out only when there is a change made to the comment field.  That was easy enough.

I am using the assigned To field to send the emails.  Here's what I would like to do but haven't' figured out.

I would like the email to go to all the people on the "assigned to" list EXCEPT if the person making the modification is in the assigned to list.  Then I don't want them to get the email.  There is also a general mailbox as well that is often added to the Assigned to field.  I would like to prevent that email as well.

I'm thinking a variable that can hold the assigned to value, then be queried and remove certain values.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You can assign the assigned to variable, while assigning take only the display name with comma delimiter. 

User regular expression to remove/replace the current user. You can send the email to the rest of the users.

Re: Removing users from an assigned to field before sending notification.

what exactly is a "assigned to  list"?

is it a person or group field with multiple entries?

or is it a sharepoint list that stores possible recipients?
