    Default Form Processor - multiple recipients

    from my current form processor:

    PHP Code:
    //Format Email
    $email    username@domain.com;
    $subject  "Contact Form";
    $headers  "From: $vis_email\r\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/html\r\n";
    //Send Email
    mail($email,$subject,$message,$headers); 
    If I have a form which has a list menu of departments - can I program in the form processor to mail the form to a particular recipient and not all?
    Can anyone talk me through the concept of what I need to do with programming?

    Thanks in advance!
    Thank you,

    You mean a select box? Just name it email.

    PHP Code:
    <select name=email>
    <
    option value="support@dude.com">Cool dudes</option>
    <
    option value="flimflam@stoopid.com">Morons</option>
    </
    select
    Then when you submit -

    $email=$_REQUEST['email'];

    I am trying to hide the email addresses in the form page so I need to assign $email1, $email2 in the form processor....

    wouldn't I need some sort of if else statement?
    Thank you,

    THANKS John-Marc!

    Also, do you know if I use a script like the one below - will email miners still grab the email:

    HTML Code:
    <script language=javascript>
      <!--
      var recipient = "e-mail"
      var email = "user"
      var Host = "domainname.com"
      document.write("<a href=" + "mail" + "to:" + email + "@" + Host+ ">" + recipient + "</a>" + "!")
      //-->
    </script>
    Thank you,
    Lynne Hanson

    Most likely not, but that is such a well know script, why not disguise a little further? - just in case...

    PHP Code:
      var recipient "e-mail"
      
    var z1 "user";
      var 
    z2 "domainname";
      var 
    z3 "com";
      var 
    s1 "@";
      var 
    s2 ".";
      
    document.write("<a href=" "mai" "lto:" +z1+s1+z2+s2+z3 ">" recipient "</a>" "!"
    In fact, I tend to avoid 'email' as a name of a var anyway, because some bots reading the form can figure it out and start hitting the form with a POST of their own.
