Extract Email Address from Array

Hi All,


Sorry if this has been posted, but I've been unable to find a close match. I need to create a notification for open items from a SharePoint list. This notification will be sent at a pre-defined schedule to any users with open items. I'm not sending a summary of the data, but rather an email template stating that the user has open items to address. I've been able to grab distinct values (thanks to another post). But I cannot seem to extract the email address(es) from the array. Can someone help out with the expression needed to extract the emails? Thanks!!

Input the following code in Compose 2 to create array:
