$destination email
multiple addresses

Is it possible to send an email to multiple addresses using the $destination_email. For instance can it work like this:

$destination_email = "myemail@yahoo.com; youremail@yahoo.com";

or is there another way to get it to work?

havent tried using semicolon to separate email addresses, but a comma works well for me.

$destination_email = "myemail@yahoo.com, youremail@yahoo.com";

do you mean the 'to' portion of the mail function?

[php.net...]

there are examples near the top of the page

to

Receiver, or receivers of the mail.

The formatting of this string must comply with RFC 2822. Some examples are:
user@example.com
user@example.com, anotheruser@example.com
User <user@example.com>
User <user@example.com>, Another User <anotheruser@example.com>

Thanks for the help. I was using a semicolon because that is what is used in outlook to separate the address. Simply using the comma worked perfect.

Thanks!

On my email app, I have the email config file emailconf.php in another directory. I enter all that information then make the call for it in the main email.php file.
Yes it is separated by commas, not semi's but I think also spaces worked the last time I had an app doing this for me too but can't confirm.
