    Adding a 2nd recipient wouldn't be the cause of not seeing your Thanks
    page. Just for yucks, delete one recipient and test it. I suspect you
    won't get the Thanks page that you were hoping for. The cause is most
    likely path or filename related. If it doesn't find the Thanks page
    that you designated, the script will display a default message... so if
    you are seeing the default message, you double-check the path and
    filename of the Thanks page.

    Thanks Laurence, for the most explicit instructions I have had in a long
    time. I actually don't have the first part on my formmailer script - //
    options to use if hidden field "config" has a value of 0, etc. etc. but I
    have followed all the other stuff and made seven inquiry pages for seven
    recipients and even send a few test messages to them and a BCC to myself.
    One thing more please: When I had only one recipient per form it returned a
    Thanks page which I made and called "thanks" but upon testing this does not
    now come up? Any ideas why?

    Hi Nancy,
    Yes my server does support PHP because I've used Formmailer on other sites,
    but only for one form and one recipient. I've never done what I wanted to do
    with it here, i.e. multiple forms to different recipients. I'm only an
    armature and some things are just too much for the return. Needless to say,
    there is no help from you know who in Jacksonville.

    I suggested that you prove to yourself that multiple recipients is not
    the cause of the non-appearing Thanks page by limited the new script to
    once recipient. After you do that, take a look at the path to the
    Thanks page. The path is part of the filename of the Thanks page. But
    keep in mind that the script is looking for the Thanks page relative to
    where the script itself is located... so you need to be aware of exactly
    where the script is sitting in order to to know where to tell the script
    to go looking for the Thanks page. Where did you put it? If the script
    is in the same folder as the Thanks page, then your script should look
    like this:

    $thanks_page[0]="thanks.html";

    But if the script was placed in a different folder than the Thanks page,
    then you must include a path that would lead the script to the correct
    file. Perhaps this...

    $thanks_page[0]="html/thanks.html";

    ....if the Thanks page is down one folder. Or this...

    $thanks_page[0]="../html/thanks.html";

    ....if it were up one and then down one. It all depends on your site
    structure.

    Dear Laurence,
    Well I've done all that as best I can but it still does not even send the
    inquiry to my house owner. I'm way out of my depth here and thank you for
    your patience and time, but I will revert to a simple mailto like I had
    before. ROGER

    Default Re: Mailto question

    I'm sorry to be a pain, but the form is not even being sent to any of my
    house owners at all.

    I copied the formmailer script from one which works well on another site but
    with only a single recipient. Then changed the referring domains and copied
    six more 'tomail' sections with the appropriate email addresses.

    I then wrote config in 'name' and the corresponding recipient number in
    'value' in the forms "submit' button properties, the section with the red
    checkered square. It's name is bookingform and method post, all other fields
    blank.

    The thanks page comes up in the original script and I the name is the same.
    I can't find any path in the script - how do I aim the new thanks page at
    the new script or visa versa?
