Email Form sent to multiple email accounts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to set multiple email accounts to receive form results.  Can this be done through the following code?

    Dim SendResultsTo As String = "email address@email.com"
                Dim smtpMailServer As String = "mail.email.com"
                Dim smtpUsername As String = "yourusername"
                Dim smtpPassword As String = "yourpassword"
                Dim MailSubject As String = "Form Submission Title"

  • Well, not through that code. :) You are showing us setting string values. You haven't shown us how you are using those values, as suggestive as the names of the strings might be.

    There are multiple ways to send email using asp.net.  Show us all the code you are using to send the email, so we can see which one you are using, and are you asking how to send to multiple "to" addresses, or additional "copy-to" addresses?

  • Thanks for the reply.  I would like to have the email "copy-to" other email address.  Here is the complete code:

    <script runat="server">
            Protected Sub SubmitForm_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
                If Not Page.IsValid Then Exit Sub

                Dim SendResultsTo As String = "email address@email.com"
                Dim smtpMailServer As String = "mail.email.com"
                Dim smtpUsername As String = "yourusername"
                Dim smtpPassword As String = "yourpassword"
                Dim MailSubject As String = "Form Submission Title"

                    Dim txtQ As TextBox = Me.FormContent.FindControl("TextBoxQ")
                    If txtQ IsNot Nothing Then
                        Dim ans As String = ViewState("hf1")
                        If ans.ToLower <> txtQ.Text.ToLower Or ans.ToUpper <> txtQ.Text.ToUpper Then
                            Me.YourForm.ActiveViewIndex = 3
                            Exit Sub
                        End If
                    End If

                    Dim FromEmail As String = SendResultsTo
                    Dim msgBody As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
                    Dim sendCC As Boolean = False

                    For Each c As Control In Me.FormContent.Controls

  • How are you going to capture those additional email addresses?  Do you know how many there will be?

    Once you know them, for each email address string, you'd:

    Dim SendCC As MailAddress = New MailAddress(email-addresss-string)

    MyMessage.CC.Add = SendCC

  • I have 3 email addresses I would like to copy the form results to.  Where would it fit into the code if these were the email addresses: email address1@email.com, email address2@email.com, email address3@email.com.

  • You put it in the code somewhere after you have defined myMessage (Dim myMessage  ...) and before you send it (MailObj.Send(myMessage)).

    Dim SendCC1 As MailAddress = New MailAddress(address1@email.com)MyMessage.CC.Add = SendCC1

    Dim SendCC2 As MailAddress = New MailAddress(address2@email.com)MyMessage.CC.Add = SendCC2

    Dim SendCC3 As MailAddress = New MailAddress(address3@email.com)MyMessage.CC.Add = SendCC3
