Checkboxes are an easy way to do it. The value of a checkbox will only be sent if it's checked. If it's not checked, then that variable isn't even created.
So the easiest way to do it is to use the email address as the value, and name the checkboxes all the same name with an  to make it an array. <input type=checkbox value='[EMAIL PROTECTED]' name='emails'> <input type=checkbox value='[EMAIL PROTECTED]' name='emails'> Then, on the page that processes this form, you'll have an $emails array that'll contain all of your email addresses to send to. So you just do this: $email_string = implode(";",$emails); mail($email_string,$subject,$message); If you can't pass the email addreses, directly, then you'll have to pass an ID that relates to the email addresses. Name your checkboxes as ID or something similar, and then you'll have an array of IDs to send the email to. ---John Holmes... ----- Original Message ----- From: "Kevin Meredith" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "PHP" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Thursday, May 02, 2002 10:02 AM Subject: [PHP] Multiple mails to be sent from checkbox selection > Hi there. > > Could someone please let me know what is the best way to send multiple mails > to different users collected from a checkbox on the previous page. > > There is a page that displays all the available recipients.
