I have a web form to send email
I use PHP
I send it like this

$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
$headers .= "From: www.mypage.com\r\nReply-To: webmaster@mypage.com";
mail($mymail, $subject, $message, $headers, $address);

I like to add CC and BCC,
how can I add it?

add some rows to your headers!


$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
$headers .= "From: www.mypage.com\r\nReply-To: webmaster@mypage.com";
$headers .= 'Cc: yourCC@adress.com' "\n";
$headers .= 'Bcc: yourBCC@adres.com' "\n";

mail($mymail, $subject, $message, $headers, $address);

this should do the trick

$to .= 'recieveremail@domain.com';
$subject .= "whats the subject";

//  send HTML mail
$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";

// Additional headers
$headers .= 'To: RECIEVERNAME <reciever@domain.com>' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: www.mypage.com <youremail@domain.com>' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Cc: CCemail@domain.com' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Bcc: BCCemail@domain' . "\r\n";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);


this is what I got and it works perfect!

I'm pretty sure the \r\n line terminators are necessary.  Also, "it didn't work.." is not an error message.  It's helpful if you can tell us what the symptoms are.

Dear Ray_Paseur, and Progressed;

When I write it like this,

$mymail="my1email@mymail.com";

$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'To: my1email@mymail.com' . "\r\n";
$headers .= "From: mydomain.com\r\nReply-To: webmaster@mydomain.com";
$headers .= 'Cc: my2emai@mymail.com' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Bcc: my3emai@mymail.com' . "\r\n";
mail($mymail, $subject, $message, $headers);

I recieve this email my1email@mymail.com on the To section.
but I can not recieve email2 or email3
thank you

if I delete
$headers .= 'To: my1email@mymail.com' . "\r\n";
it still sends the email to :

$mymail="my1email@mymail.com";
mail($mymail, $subject, $message, $headers, $address);

Why are you setting mymail as to in the mail() function?

its: mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

in the headers you give YOUR emailadresses in from/cc/bcc in the $header section
