Q2078 Is there a way to send an email from a form to several recipients?

Yes there is a way, and it is easy if you know who the recipients are and as long as they don't change. It only works in Netscape and MSIE 4+ though, because it uses the mailto: protocol in a form.

Let's say you wanted to send a form to person1@irt.org, and cc it to person2 and person3. Your form tag should look something like this:

<FORM ACTION="mailto:person1@irt.org?cc=person2@irt.org&cc=person3@irt.org">

If you want to choose which recipients receive the form, you can find a more complex JavaScript solution at Advanced mailto: techniques.
