sending multiple mail recepiants via form to a JSP

I found that if I were to use a simple thing as mailto to a list of user in a String format. i.e.

<% String finalEmailList = "user1@company.com,user2@company.com"; %>
<a href="mailto:<%=finalEmailList%>">Email candidate</a>

Groupwise does not really like it and only sent email to the first user. Any clue on how to solve this?

I have since created a form post thing...but still stuck. I am not sure if I need to introduce Array. If I need to, how could I get the email into array and then pass it via form post?

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.


[CODE]
<%
String finalEmailList = "user1@company.com,user2@company.com";
%>

<FORM name=myform METHOD="post" ACTION="sendMail.jsp">

<INPUT class=inputText TYPE="text" NAME="f_mail_subject" MAXLENGTH="200" SIZE="40" VALUE="">

<TEXTAREA NAME="f_mail_body" COLS=40 ROWS=8 VALUE=""></TEXTAREA>

<input type="hidden" name="f_mail_to" value="<%=finalEmailList%>" >
<input class="buttons" type="submit" value="submit" name="action">
<input class="buttons" type="Reset">

</form>

---- This is my sendMail.jsp ---

<%@ page import="com.mail.SendMail"%>
<%@ page import="com.mail.AppConfig"%>
<% AppConfig appConfig = new AppConfig(); %>

SendMail thisSendMail = new SendMail();
               
thisSendMail.setUser(appConfig.getMailUser());
thisSendMail.setPwd(appConfig.getMailPwd());      
thisSendMail.setServer(appConfig.getSmtpServer());
thisSendMail.setFrom(appConfig.getSystemAccount());
thisSendMail.setTo(request.getParameter("f_mail_to"));
thisSendMail.setContentType("text/html");
thisSendMail.setSubject(request.getParameter("f_mail_subject"));
thisSendMail.setMessage(request.getParameter("f_mail_body"));
               
if ( thisSendMail.Send() )
{
   out.println(" Mail sent successful.");
} else {
   out.println("unsuccessful");
}
[/CODE]

1) See the mailto: url spec (you may want to use cc and bcc lines to handle multiple addresses)
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2368.html

2) You cannot use a form to post to or launch your mail reader (Groupwise.)

Correction, to (2) above...

Yes, you can... but you/I get a warning when doing it:
Use ; instead of , to separate mail addresses...
