    Hi,

    How can I set a form to send to multiple recipients upon submission? Where I'd usually put the email address, so I just use a comma? IE: "you@site.com, him@othersite.com, etc"? I'm using the typical FormMail script I believe...

    Most formmail scripts will allow you to send to multiple address just by using a comma. I have used several different scripts and this has worked for them all. So basically, address1@site.com,address2@site.com

    Try putting one address in the TO part and the others in the CC part. I'm not familiar with FormMail by Matt Wright but I'm sure there has to be a way to CC people.

    I use the FormMail script of Matt's Script archive and in the readme file there are instructions to send it to more than one email.

    You DON'T have to get in the script though to change that.

    I use Matt Wright's FormMail script and, in the past, I have sent the form results to multiple email addresses by using the comma (At least I think I have...).

    If you are using his script all you need to do is use the comma like this:
    <form recipient="email1@yourname.com, email2@yourname.com, etc.">

    Give it a try, it should work unless you are using a different formmail script and it doesn't support multiple recipients.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm not sure about the space after the comma though...
