Using one copy of the script to send to different email addresses depending on a form input  (See more user questions)

You're making perfect sense, !

Thank you for your kind words.

Making four copies of the script is certainly the most straight-forward solution. There isn't a configuration in the script to change the email dependent on an inputted field, but have a look at this previously asked question:

It means putting the email address in a hidden field on the form which isn't really advisable.

Have a look also at the article on my support section for selecting a recipient from a list:'s not exactly what you are after but could give you some pointers.

Just off the top of my head:

You could put a hidden input on each form to identify it e.g:

<input type="hidden" name="form_name" value="sales">

<input type="hidden" name="form_name" value="support">

Then put this code in the script:


if($_POST['form_name'] == "sales"){$my_email = "[email protected]";}
if($_POST['form_name'] == "support"){$my_email = "[email protected]";}


Put it after this line in the script:

$my_email = "delete these words and put the email address(es) only, in here between the quotes";

That should do you!

Best wishes.
