PHP not recognizing end of email address

I have a form that is used to invite people to a site via email addresses.

The problem seems to be the code does not recognize the end of the email address so one email address works, but if you put in more than 1 it tells you the address is incorrect as it sees the space or comma between addresses.

I need to be able to enter multiple addresses separated by space or comma and have it loop through the list to send out the emails.

Help me get this working and you will get a fast 500 points.
Help me adjust it to limit a max of 99 emails and you are even better.
