PHP mailer script - add recipient


Recommended Posts

I have a simple php script to send email from contact form... it works okay... but I need to add an additional recipient and am lost.

Here is the script... your help would be appreciated. The text in red are parts in question.


// My modifications to mailer script from:
// Added input sanitizing to prevent injection
// Only process POST reqeusts.
// Get the form fields and remove whitespace.
$name = strip_tags(trim($_POST["name"]));
$name = str_replace(array("\r","\n"),array(" "," "),$name);
$email = filter_var(trim($_POST["email"]), FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL);
// tlh add phone
$phone = trim($_POST["phone"]);
$message = trim($_POST["message"]);
// Check that data was sent to the mailer.
// tlh added phone
if ( empty($name) OR empty($message) OR empty($phone) OR !filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
// Set a 400 (bad request) response code and exit.
echo "Oops! There was a problem with your submission. Please complete the form and try again.";
// Set the recipient email address.
// FIXME: Update this to your desired email address.
$recipient = "user@somedomain.com";
// Set the email subject.
$subject = "New Website Contact Form Submittal";
// Build the email content.
$email_content = "Name: $name\n";
$email_content .= "Email: $email\n\n";
$email_content .= "Phone Number: $phone\n";
$email_content .= "Message:\n$message\n";
// Build the email headers.
$email_headers = "From: $name <$email>";
// Send the email.
if (mail($recipient, $subject, $email_content, $email_headers)) {
// Set a 200 (okay) response code.
echo "Thank You! Your message has been sent.";
} else {
// Set a 500 (internal server error) response code.
echo "Oops! Something went wrong and we couldn't send your message.";
} else {
// Not a POST request, set a 403 (forbidden) response code.
echo "There was a problem with your submission, please try again.";

You can have multiple recipients separated by commas.

$recipient = 'user1@somedomain.com, user2@somedomain.com';

If you want to use the Cc and Bcc fields you can add them to the additional headers:

$email_headers = "From: $name <$email>\r\n";
$email_headers .= "Cc: user2@somedomain.com";

Thank you FoxyMod! I had been working on that for quite a while and it was all about where the parenthesis were :-) In my case 2 heads are always better than one. Appreciate you.
