Variables when sending e-mail from Power Automate

How can I insert variables for e-mail addresses into a flow?    I want to use a text string for the addresses, but would prefer to have them in a variable.  (There actually will be several e-mails sent to the same recipients and I want to avoid needing a whole new set of e-mail actions for each set of recipients.  Is 'Initialize variable' correct?  Do I need a 'compose' step, or a 'set variable' or something?


I have this, but it doesn't work:

In this display, I'm trying to show that I want to use the variable, "email_addresses", in the 'Send and email (V2) 5  'To' field.

However, this is not available to me in dynamic content, where I only see "email_request", which is a different field that I'd used elsewhere.


The value of email_addresses will be used to send e-mails to and this time.  But if I get the variable concept to work, I'll be inserting a condition so at other times I'll only be sending the mail to only Bob, and not Mary. 





Try to place in the To: field  the following:
