Hi I have a form with an option to send to various recipients. I have used this setup before on another server without any problems:

<cfform action="thankyou.cfm" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="Enquiry Form">
                   <p>Fields shown with an <span class="style1">* </span>are compulsory. </p>
                   <table width="100%" border="1" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" bordercolor="#003333" class="mainbodytext">
                  <tr>
                    <td width="34%">I want to email </td>
                    <td width="66%"><select name="contact">
                      <option value="Rep">Rep</option>
                      <option value="Chairman">Chairman</option>
                      <option value="Secretary">Secretary</option>
                      <option value="Treasurer">Treasurer</option>
                    </select>                    </td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Name<span class="style1">*</span></td>
                    <td><cfinput name="name" type="text" id="name" value="" required="yes" message="Please enter Name"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Company</td>
                    <td><cfinput name="company" type="text" id="company"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Phone<span class="style1">*</span></td>
                    <td><cfinput name="phone" type="text" id="phone" value="" required="yes" message="Please enter your phone number"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Email<span class="style1">*</span></td>
                    <td><cfinput name="email" type="text" id="email" value="" required="yes" message="Please enter your email address"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Comments</td>
                    <td><textarea name="comments" cols="40" rows="4"></textarea></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>&nbsp;</td>
                    <td><input name="Submit" type="submit" id="Submit" value="Send Email"></td>
                  </tr>
                </table></cfform>

then within thankyou.cfm I have:

<cfif ISDefined("recipient")>
      <cfset sendTo = recipient>
<cfelse>

      <cfswitch expression="contact">
      <cfcase value="Rep">
               <cfset sendTo = "rep@dot.com">
      </cfcase>
      <cfcase value="Chairman">
               <cfset sendTo =  "chairman@dot.com">
      </cfcase>
      <cfcase value="Secretary">
               <cfset sendTo =  "secretary@dot.com">
      </cfcase>
      <cfcase value="Treasurer">
               <cfset sendTo =  "treasurer@dot.com">
      </cfcase>
      <cfdefaultcase>
               <cfset sendTo =  "default@dot.com">
      </cfdefaultcase>
      </cfswitch>

</cfif>

<cfmail to="#sendTo#" from="#email#" subject="Enquiry From Website" type="html">
Name: <strong>#name#</strong><br>
Phone: <strong>#phone#</strong><br>
Comments:<strong> #comments#</strong><br>
</cfmail>

On testing it keeps sending to "default@dot.com" and I can't see why...

Any help would be appreciated.
