Feedback Forms: sending info back to 2 addresses

Is there a way that you can construct the mailto command on a submission form so that it can send or forward the info (via mail) to more than one address?  As of now, I have to forward a copy manually to the second person, but if there is a way to make it go directly to two of us, then that would be perfect.

Also, what is the best way to inform the user that the mail has been sent?  Do I need to write a CGI script?  What's the easiest way to handle that?  I understand that if a program called "AnyForm" is installed on the server, the process is much easier...but I do not believe my webspace provider has this....so what is my best option?

The webspace provider I use is Best Communications, and the submission form I'm working on is at:

Probably the easiest way to get mail sent to two people via the mailto tag is to get your technical guy to set up a mail alias that forwards the mail sent to that address to two people.  Then to just have the mailto part point to this mail alias.

Alternantly you would have to write a cgi script to send out the response to two people.  The cgi script will also format the response making it easier to read.

To get a response after the user has submited their comments you will need a cgi script.  These are relitivly easy to find on the net if you search for keywords such as form or perl.  This can also be made part of the cgi script you write for the mailing.
