Sending to an email address based on menu selection

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

How can I send form results to an email address based on what the user selects from a menu?

Here's the HTML code:

[code]
<select name="Company" onChange="redirect(this.options.selectedIndex)" size="1" onFocus="this.style.background='#fff';" onBlur="this.style.background='#F8E2C9';" class="text" style="width:170px;" value="0">
<option selected>- Select Company -</option>
<option value="a" selected>A</option>
<option value="b">B</option>
<option value="c">C</option>
</select>

[/code]

Here's PHP code to send email:

[code]
//Sending Email to form owner
$pfw_header = "From: $Email\n"
  . "Reply-To: $Email\n";
$pfw_subject = "Job Application";
$pfw_email_to = "someone@abc.com";
$pfw_message = "Company: $Company\n\n"
. "First Name: $FirstName\n\n"
. "Middle Initial: $MiddleInitial\n\n"
. "Last Name: $LastName\n\n"
. "Address: $StreetName\n\n"
. "City: $City\n\n"
. "State: $State\n\n"
. "Zip Code: $ZipCode\n\n"
. "Phone: $Phone\n\n"
. "Best Time to Call: $BestTimetoCall\n\n"
. "Email: $Email\n\n"
. "High School: $HighSchool\n\n"
. "College: $College\n\n"
. "Resume: $resume_URL\n\n"
. "How Did You Find Us: $HowDidYouFindUs\n\n"
. "Referral Name: $ReferralName\n\n"
. "Race Ethnic Origin: $RaceEthnicOrigin\n\n"
. "Vietnam Veteran: $VietnamVeteran\n\n"
. "Decline: $Decline\n";
@mail($pfw_email_to, $pfw_subject ,$pfw_message ,$pfw_header ) ;
[/code]

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I am not planning to store any email address. When the user submits the form it'll go to whatever email or company selected.

Thanks

That's impossible, you must have the email addresses somewhere...

If I select Company A from your drop down, how does the form know that Company A's email address is me@company.com?

I am very sorry, I've totally misunderstood your last question therefore my last reply was totally wrong. I am not sure if I should store them in the menu or this should be differents variable? This is where I am totally clueless. Maybe you can help.

Thanks again.

You could try something like this...

[code]

<?php

$recipient = $_POST['company'];

switch ($recipient) {

default:
//send email to webmaster
$toaddress = "webmaster@mysite.com";
break;

case "company1":
//send email to person1@somewhere.com
$toaddress = "person1@somewhere.com";
break;

case "company2":
//send email to person2@somewhereelse.com
$toaddress = "person2@somewhereelse.com";
break;

}

FunctionToMail($toaddress, $fromaddress, $sub);

//Here follows some pseudocode for the function

function FunctionToMail($to, $from, $subject) {

//Enter in the email script here that accepts the above variables as input

}

?>

[/code]

I'd be inclined to save it in an array keyed on company name if there's only a couple, or a database if theirs lots.

[code]<?php
$email_addresses = array('CompanyA' => "me@mycompany.com", 'CompanyB' => "you@yourcompany.com");

$to = $email_address['$_REQUEST['Company']'];
?>[/code]
