sending email to different recipients via variable

sending email to different recipients via variable

Your extensions work great. I have built a simple submission form requiring name, email address and a location from a dropdown menu (a US state: strcmp). I would like to send the completed form to a different recipient depending on which state(s) are chosen - as if to different sales reps in different regions.

Can anyone tell me how to correctly do this? I think I know how conceptually, but I can't get the syntax right.

I've tried a few ways involving a switch statement, but I don't have it right.

The send method is "POST".

I've attached a PDF of the code.

Any help will be appreciated.

I think you are on the rite track with your switch statement. However, rather than have multiple versions of the UE code with different email addresses you should just be setting the email address variable. Then below the switch you can just have the include for the UE. Also, you do not have a default in your statement, you should include this for any value that does not fit into the defined cases. Here is an example of this setup:

switch((isset($_POST["select"]))?$_POST["select"]:"") {

case "AL":
$RecipientEmail = "";
case "AK":
$RecipientEmail = "";
case "AZ":
$RecipientEmail = "";
$RecipientEmail = "<the default email address>";
