Looking for a way to add a Cc to this code as well as an autoreply
<?php
// Mail header removal
function remove_headers($string) { 
  $headers = array(
    "/to\:/i",
    "/from\:/i",
    "/bcc\:/i",
    "/cc\:/i",
    "/Content\-Transfer\-Encoding\:/i",
    "/Content\-Type\:/i",
    "/Mime\-Version\:/i" 
  ); 
  return preg_replace($headers, '', $string); 
}
// Pick up the form data and assign it to variables
$LAST_NAME = $_POST['LAST_NAME'];
$FIRST_NAME = $_POST['FIRST_NAME'];
$STREET_ADDRESS = $_POST['STREET_ADDRESS'];
$APARTMENT_NO = $_POST['APARTMENT_NO'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$CITY = $_POST['CITY'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$STATE = $_POST['STATE'];
$ZIP = $_POST['ZIP'];
$PHONE = $_POST['PHONE'];
$DEGREE = $_POST['DEGREE'];
$SPECIALTY = $_POST['SPECIALTY'];
$Type_of_Registration = $_POST['Type_of_Registration'];
$CC = $_POST['CC'];
$NAME_ON_CREDIT_CARD = $_POST['NAME_ON_CREDIT_CARD'];
$CREDIT_CARD_NO = $_POST['CREDIT_CARD_NO'];
$EXP_DATE_MONTH = $_POST['EXP_DATE_MONTH'];
$EXP_DATE_YEAR = $_POST['EXP_DATE_YEAR'];
$Surname = $_POST['Surname'];
$autoreply = "Thank you for registering online for the Therapeutic ERCP/EUS Workshop. \n\nConference date: Thursday, October 28, 2010\n\nConference times: 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. \n\n(Continental breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. Lunch is at 12:00 p.m.)\n\nFor more information or to register please call (909) 920-5877 ext. 21";





// Build the email (replace the address in the $to section with your own)
$to = 'me@mydomain.com';
$subject = "Online Registration - Therapeutic ERCP/EUS Workshop";
$headers .= "From: $email \n\n";
$message .= "Name: $FIRST_NAME $LAST_NAME \n\n";
$message .=  "Address: $STREET_ADDRESS \n\n";
$message .=  "Address2: $APARTMENT_NO \n\n";

$message .=  "Credit Card Number: $CREDIT_CARD_NO \n\n";
$message .=  "Credit Card Expiration Date: $EXP_DATE_MONTH, $EXP_DATE_YEAR \n\n";

 $Comments = $_POST['Surname']; 
if ($Comments != '') { 
exit("Thanks for your input Spammy"); 
} else {

// Send the mail using PHPs mail() function
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

// Redirect

1. It is irresponsible to send credit card information via email unless your email server is employing TLS/SSL. I am assuming you are encrypting this traffic at all points from user entry on the original page, the page where you're posting this, end to end encryption with SSL/TLS when it is being sent to the server, drive encryption to prevent the credit cards from being stolen off the disk or accidental exposure, and then again between the server and the recipients of your to, cc, and other fields.

if not, you need to re-think your strategy about taking cards online. I suggest using authorize.net or some other gateway that has a secure API with which you can use PHP to write code for.

To answer your question:

Just add it to the headers:
$headers .= "BCC: dumidesign@gmail.com\n\n";
$headers .= "CC: somewhereelse@gmail.com\n\n";

I personally recommend that you use phpmailer, which is a class that takes care of all the messy work for you:

Oh... and for the autoreply, just create a second message after you send the first with your autoreply message in it: "Your card has been processed. Thanks." or something like that.

thanks for the help DrDamnit (best username ever). We've been trying to get them to do this the right way for years - to no avail.

I completely get the CC, Bcc stuff but am a little fuzzy on the autoreply.

now do i create a 2nd message after i send my first message?  can you provide an example?

Thanks

Prior to trying to test the autoreply, I added DrDamnit's code for the cc and i did not recieve a cc. then I added code for the autoreply and that's not working either.  I need to be steered in the right direction please.

    "/Content\-Transfer\-Encoding\:/i",
    "/Content\-Type\:/i",
    "/Mime\-Version\:/i" 
  ); 
  return preg_replace($headers, '', $string); 
}
// Pick up the form data and assign it to variables
$LAST_NAME = $_POST['LAST_NAME'];
$FIRST_NAME = $_POST['FIRST_NAME'];
$STREET_ADDRESS = $_POST['STREET_ADDRESS'];
$APARTMENT_NO = $_POST['APARTMENT_NO'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$CITY = $_POST['CITY'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$STATE = $_POST['STATE'];
$ZIP = $_POST['ZIP'];
$PHONE = $_POST['PHONE'];
$DEGREE = $_POST['DEGREE'];

$Type_of_Registration = $_POST['Type_of_Registration'];
$CC = $_POST['CC'];
$NAME_ON_CREDIT_CARD = $_POST['NAME_ON_CREDIT_CARD'];
$CREDIT_CARD_NO = $_POST['CREDIT_CARD_NO'];
$EXP_DATE_MONTH = $_POST['EXP_DATE_MONTH'];
$EXP_DATE_YEAR = $_POST['EXP_DATE_YEAR'];
