I currently have a web site, on that website i need to send four different e-mails to 4 different people, each e-mail being different. All these e-mails need to be sent at the same time. I have a confirmation page which has a send e-mail button at the bottom. Is it possible to put code behind this button in order to do this? What would be the code to do this?

If not what is the best way of going around it?

I played around with the FP form, but the ways that I coded did not work.  One way around that you could do it (actually I have done it this way on a few forms), is you create an e-mail alias that goes to all four other e-mail addresses on your e-mail server.  Most hosting companies allow free e-mail aliases.  

For example, you create something like form@yourdomain.com - and this will automatically go to four e-mail addresses that you specified.

can you run perl on your server?  if so, you can use formmail in a cgi script.
from within the script you can send to one address, within the configuration file, you can branch out the sent email to as many emails as you wish.

Write your own ASP script to process the mail. You can make it do whatever you want, and send to as many addresses as you want.

FrontPage is not going to do it. It was not designed for things like this.

I have been trying to look into the same issue as part of a series of tutorials that I'm developing. You can use CDONTS Mail Object to do exactly what you are trying to do now.

Check it out at:


If you get a page error use the IP address for the next few days. I'm having a few DNS problems that my ISP is in the process of correcting. The link is:

I am not a coder, but CDONTS is quite easy if you follow the step-by-step procedures that I've set up. You can have it send as many emails as you want, with each one customized as much as you want.
