    Default multiple emails (different domains)

    I've used, loved (and donated to) formmail. But I still have problems sending an email to multiple recipients. On one site, a not-for-profit site, I solved the problem by providing multiple copies of formmail, naming them 1, 2, 3. This apparently fixed what was a maddening problem in getting formmail to send to multiple recipients. It would take the first email listed in the array, send an email and ignore the rest.

    Now I'm trying to configure formmail for a non-profit org and it simply won't send multiple emails no matter what I do. I tried both the version I had on the not-for-profit site and then used the wizard to configure an update. It simply refuses to send emails to more than one recipient.

    I'm using hosting from 1and1.com on both sites. It's possible it's not formmail but rather 1and1.

    This is a problem. I hope it can be addressed at some point.

    Hi Mark,

    It's definitely not FormMail at fault.

    If you specify multiple recipients it sends to those recipients according to the normal mail sending protocol.

    If the server doesn't deliver to them all, there's nothing FormMail can do about it.

    All I can suggest is you try a better hosting provider.

    But, first, try using the PEAR_ settings in FormMail. This uses a different mechanism to send email via the server and may be more reliable.
