I've got a client who needs to have several email addresses sent the contents of submitted form. Unfortunately it appears that the EMail submission to field is limited to 50 characters: (would have commented on that post, but it's archived).

Does anyone know of a way to get round this? I'm running SS 2.3.0 and userforms 0.1.0 - don't want to upgrade UserForms as I find it very buggy.

I would just decorate the object and set it to a different datatype.

class MyUserForm extends DataObjectDecorator
function extraStatics()
return array('db' => array('Email' => 'Text'));
