First of all: there goes a ; between the recepients.

But most important: i want to use a MAIL-FORM on a WEB-PAGE!
I don't want to use <A HREF="mailto:adress1;addres2;etc..">

At least with Netscape I am able to:
<form action='mailto:name1@somewhere.com, name2@else.com' method=post>

.

Incorrect.

Glad it works in both.  You have saved me needing to test it in the other browser.  Actually I would guess that this will work with any browser that supports the <form action=mailto: since my assumption is that the address parsing is not being done on the browser but only by your mail agent.

Sort-of-correct.
The browser parses everything between
the "opening-quote" and the "closing-quote"
and passes that to the mail-agent.
The mail-agent parses the "<text><blank><text>"
into two occurrences of "<text>",
and sends E-mail to each recipient.

Obviously, the "opening-quote" and the
"closing-quote" can usually be omitted,
whenever the text between the quotes
is "blank-free", and the browser's parser
will find either a "blank" or a '>'
as a "string-termination" character.
