Help with some manual coding

I need to manually add a domain to an email address. At the moment I have emails set up to send to multiple recipients using their email address. That works fine but now the client want's to use their email forwarding address. That is to say that the domain part of the address will always be the same. In the database the forwarding address is just their first and lastname with a dot in between (john.langer) so I want to add the "@domain.com" from within the code. At the moment I have this

//To Entries
do {
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddRecipient($WA_MailObject,"".$row_rsListMembers["email"] ."");
} while ($row_rsListMembers = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsListMembers));
}

I need to add the domain to it. Is this correct?

//To Entries
do {
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddRecipient($WA_MailObject,"".$row_rsListMembers["realmail"] . "@domain.com" . "");
} while ($row_rsListMembers = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsListMembers));
}

Does that seem the correct code to you? I just want to check before testing as a test email will go to about 250 people so I don't want to send endless testing emails.

Many thanks

Yes, that looks correct.

to test and keep from sending out the 250 emails, set the recordset to return only your email address, you can remove the filter once it is tested and the emails will be sent to the entire database.

Thanks Jason.

That's a good tip as well. Why didn't I think of that? :)

Unfortunately, that didn't seem to work. The emails just did not send.

Before I start messing with this to much a far easier way of doing this would be to have the forwarding email address in the database in full. At the moment it says John.Langer (for example) but if it was John.Langer@domain.com then it would be a straightforward matter from within the UE wizard to correct.

Bearing in mind that I have roughly 250 entries in the database, is there a MySql command that will append (if that's the right word) "@domain.com" on the end of something that's already in the record.

Append @domain.com to the end of whatevers in the column email

So it would change John.Langer to John.Langer@domain.com then move on to the next record and change Fred.Bloggs to Fred.Bloggs@domain .com and so on.

Or is that wishful thinking on my part?

You can use SQL:

UPDATE table SET ColumnName = CONCAT(ColumnName , '@domain.com')

or you could do it in your select statement:

SELECT *, CONCAT(ColumnName , '@domain.com') AS EmailTo FROM table

If you don't mind my saying so Ray, you're a genius.

The first method worked brilliantly. I can't thank you enough.
