is building an array an option?

example:

<?php
$toaddresser = array();
if(isset($_POST['tech'])) $toaddresses[] = 'technique@test.fr';
if(isset($_POST['sav'])) $toaddresses[] = 'sav@test.fr';
if(isset($_POST['doc'])) $toaddresses[] = 'documentation@test.fr';

$mailcontent =
              ."e-mail: ".$email."\n"
              ."Demnande 1: ".$tech."\n"
              ."Demande 2: ".$sav."\n"
              ."Demande 3: ".$doc."\n"
              ."Demande 4: ".$autre."\n"
              ."Message: ".$message."\n";

$mails_send = 0;
foreach($toaddresses as $toaddress)
  if(mail($toaddress, $subject, $mailcontent)) $mails_send++;

if($mails_send == count($toaddresses))
{
  echo 'All your mails are send succesfully';
}
else
{
  echo $mails_send.' out of '.count($toaddresses).' have been send.';
}
?>

First modify checkboxes - add [] to 'demande' names like that
<input class='input2' type='checkbox' name='demande[]' value='sav'>S.A.V.
That way you will submit an array with all checked boxes instead of only one latest.

Then define array:

$addresses['tech'] = "technique@test.fr";
$addresses['sav'] = "sav@test.fr";
...
// and here's mass maling script with some sanity checks =)
$addr = array();
foreach ($_POST['demande'] as $p) {
    if (isset($addresses[$p])) {
        $addr[] = $addresses[$p];
    }
}

if(!empty($addr)) {  //send mail
    $addr = array_unique( $addr );
    $toaddress = implode(",", $addr);
    // your mail strings here
    ....  
} else {
    // output error message to check at least one box
}

I wasn't going to post to this thread as a working idea had been submitted but as alternatives have been posted i will add this, a much more simplified yet equally effective approach:

<?php
$toadd = $_POST['demande'];
for($i=0;$i<count($toadd);$i++) $toadd[$i] .= "@test.fr";
$toadd = implode(",",$toadd);

$subject = "contact";
$mailcontent =
              ."e-mail: ".$email."\n"
              ."Demnande 1: ".$tech."\n"
              ."Demande 2: ".$sav."\n"
              ."Demande 3: ".$doc."\n"
              ."Demande 4: ".$autre."\n"
              ."Message: ".$message."\n";

mail($toadd, $subject, $mailcontent);

echo "Votre message has been sent";
?>

It will require a couple of modifications to your form (checkboxes need to be a html array and two fields need renaming):

<form method='post' action='contact.php'>
E-mail :<input type='text' name='mail' size='20' value='$mail' maxlength='40' />
Your inquirie :
<input class='input2' type='checkbox' name='demande[]' value='technique'>Technique
<input class='input2' type='checkbox' name='demande[]' value='sav'>S.A.V.
<input class='input2' type='checkbox' name='demande[]' value='documentation'>Documentation
<input class='input2' type='checkbox' name='demande[]' value='autre'>Autre

<input name='submit' type='submit' value='Send' />
</form>

Re: Diable84. You know that with javascript run from your favourites you could change the values of the checkboxes and change them into 'all' or something, quite easily spamming the whole company?

two cts.

You could achieve the same thing by creating another form and submitting it to the processing page, just a bare bones example to add to the mix... demonstrating how important validation is ;)
