Hi

I have some code I am using to send email from a web form

function authSendEmail($from, $namefrom, $to, $nameto, $subject, $message)
{
//SMTP + SERVER DETAILS
/* * * * CONFIGURATION START * * * */
$smtpServer = "mail.YOUR-DOMAIN.com";
$port = "25";
$timeout = "30";
$username = "your-emaill@domain.com";
$password = "Email password";
$localhost = "mail.YOUR-DOMAIN.com";
$newLine = "\r\n";
/* * * * CONFIGURATION END * * * * */

//Connect to the host on the specified port
$smtpConnect = fsockopen($smtpServer, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
if(empty($smtpConnect))
{
$output = "Failed to connect: $smtpResponse";
return $output;
}
else
{
$logArray['connection'] = "Connected: $smtpResponse";
}

//Request Auth Login
fputs($smtpConnect,"AUTH LOGIN" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authrequest'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Send username
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($username) . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authusername'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Send password
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($password) . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authpassword'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Say Hello to SMTP
fputs($smtpConnect, "HELO $localhost" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['heloresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Email From
fputs($smtpConnect, "MAIL FROM: $from" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['mailfromresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Email To
fputs($smtpConnect, "RCPT TO: $to" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['mailtoresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//The Email
fputs($smtpConnect, "DATA" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['data1response'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Construct Headers
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . $newLine;
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" . $newLine;
$headers .= "To: $nameto <$to>" . $newLine;
$headers .= "From: $namefrom <$from>" . $newLine;

fputs($smtpConnect, "To: $to\nFrom: $from\nSubject: $subject\n$headers\n\n$message\n.\n");
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['data2response'] = "$smtpResponse";

// Say Bye to SMTP
fputs($smtpConnect,"QUIT" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['quitresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";
}
?>

Open in new window

Why don't you use PHPMailer? http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmailer/
It's easy to use and saves you a lot of trouble.

PHPMailer will do that on a Windows server.  Where is your mail server?  I've used PHPMailer to send mail thru my Gmail account.  It includes sample code to do that.

I think what you need should be "mail1@domain.com; mail2@domain.com";  assigned to $TO but because you are using $NAMETO it won't work as you intend on your header section.

As it is now in your header section will be something like:

 To: Name, Last_name <mail1@domain.com; mail2@domain.com>.   Which is invalid!!

You should introduce more VARS to the function to cover more addresses ($to1, $nameto1, $to2, $name2).
