Here is the php code i am using to process the form:
<?php
// Receiving variables
@$pfw_ip= $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
@$to = addslashes($_POST['to']);
@$name = addslashes($_POST['name']);
@$phone = addslashes($_POST['phone']);
@$email = addslashes($_POST['email']);
@$comments = addslashes($_POST['comments']);

//Sending Email to form owner
$pfw_header = "From: $email\n"
  . "Reply-To: $email\n";
$pfw_subject = "Contact Form";
$pfw_email_to = "$to\n";
$pfw_message = "Visitor's IP: $pfw_ip\n"
. "name: $name\n"
. "phone: $phone\n"
. "email: $email\n"
. "comments: $comments\n";
@mail($pfw_email_to, $pfw_subject ,$pfw_message ,$pfw_header ) ;

header("Location: thankyou.html");

?>

When you use a select multiple, the values are stored as an array.  You need to process the array and loop through it to send one email per element in the array.

rschoenbachCommented:
this variable (@$to = addslashes($_POST['to']);) will be stored as an array when it posts.

Therefore you need to iterate through it before sending to get your email string.

foreach($_POST['to'] as $email) {
$cleanvalue = addslashes($email);
$email_string .= $cleanvalue
}

Then send the email using $email_string.

Also, since you have activated selecting multiples it would be good practice and would save some lines of code if you added ";" to all the email options.

nizsmoDeveloperCommented:
change your combobox values separator from ";" to "," and you should be alright:
like this:

<option value="alex@imaginationgraphics.com, lisa@imaginationgraphics.com, matt@imaginationgraphics.com, jeremy@imaginationgraphics.com">Sales Department</option>
                                                            <option value="alex@imaginationgraphics.com, lisa@imaginationgraphics.com, matt@imaginationgraphics.com, jeremy@imaginationgraphics.com">All Departments</option>

The mail() function's TO field with multiple recipients need to be separated by commas.

Hope this helps.
