Trying to add a CC function to a php contact form


Recommended Posts

I have a php contact form that works perfectly.



It has a drop down list, and the forms results are emailed to the selected drop down persons email address.


I want to add a Cc function to the form ... so that there is a copy, or record of all emails sent.


The address $to = "support@xxx.com is the one that I want the Cc to go to, but I don't know how to make it work.



Not sure how to do this.



Below is what I have ... how do I integrate the Cc function into the script.




$to = $_POST["to"];  if(!in_array($to,array("ian@xxx.com","adam@xxx.com","keith@xxx.com","sue@xxx.com","mark@xxx.com","scott@xxx.com","joyce@xxx.com","joe@xxx.com","ken@xxx.com","info@xxx.com"))) $to = "support@xxx.com";  $subject = "Order";

there are two ways to send a copy of every email to two addresses:

you could pass a cc header:

$to = $selected_email;
$subject = 'subject';
$content = 'this goes to multiple addresses';
$header  'Cc: sendcopyto@test.com' . "\r\n";

Or you could use multiple recipient addresses:

$to = $selected_email.', sendcopyto@test.com';
$subject = 'subject';
$content = 'this goes to multiple addresses';

What are you using to send the mail itself? Are you using the mail() construct, or using something else like the SMTP class from PEAR?


If it's mail(), you need to add the CC in the extra headers for the mail. http://php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php


If it's anything else, you should refer to the documentation for what you're using.
