two email from same action (button pressed)

Hi all,
I trying to find the best way to handle emails from my page.
Basically I have a page that will insert a record in a database along with 2 emails.
- email1: contains an HTML message and an attachment and will be sent to address1;
- email2: contains the same HTML message as email1, but has NO attachments and will be sent to address2;

I can't understand how to set up them independently one from each other.
When I add an attachment to one of them, the same aatcchment appears in the other and vice versa.

Expecially when I try to edit the email log fields. Every time I select a source from the lighting bolt and hit enter I get a javascript error and there is no way to set log fields.
The only way I found is to delete (drop) the email_logs table and let the WA server behaviour recreate it from scratch (with the default log fields).
It seems a bit buggy here.

Is there a way to edit email template easily? If I use the dreamweaver button for editing it, a file is opened and closed as soon as I end the editing. Where is this file? can I edit a standalone file for the email body?
TIA for any suggestion.

Can I see a copy of the page? It sounds like you may have copied and pasted the email server behavior instead of applying it twice, which is why you get two emails with the same body that can't be edited separately.

The solution is to either remove and re-apply, or to find the email include, rename it, and manually update the email reference and file name in one of the email server behaviors to point to the new file. Once you have two separate include files for the email they will be able to be edited separately including the body template file.
