I'm not sure if this is a bug or I am missing something. I would like to send to two recipients in my contact form rather than just one. However it seems that I can only have 50 characters in this field - any more get removed. Unfortunately one of the email addresses is quite long so by the time I add both addresses separated by commas, the length is over the limit.

Can I increase the allowable size of the field somehow? Any help would be much appreciated.

I have made a fix at my hosting end by adding a MailGroup containing the required extra email address. This should work OK. Would still be interested to know of how to do it at the CMS end though.

This is easily solved in the database. Login to your phpmyadmin (or similar).

Find the table "UserDefinedForm", edit field "EmailTo", and change the "varchar" limit to about 200-300 depending on the amount of e-mailaddresses you need to enter.

Et voila! It's solved :) Hope this helps you!

Thanks very much for the help. Should be able to sort that no problem.
