You don't have to worry about figuring out how to do the group thing, think of it as if we are sending an email to one more individual outside of the branch managers. I will create a distribution list on our exchange server for the 4 people. I just need to have the groupdl@gmail.com (of the 4 individuals) added to code somehow, like a mailto:cc=groupdl@gmail.com

How does the branch manager actually receive an email? In other words do I replace the $R_branch and $S_branch with their actual emails like so:

$R_email@email.com = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['R_boston'])));
$R_email@email.com = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['R_columbia'])));
etc.

$S_email@email.com = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['S_boston'])));
$S_email@email.com = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['S_columbia'])));
etc.

or is it like this? OR something completely different? I feel like I'm missing something.

$R_boston = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['email@email.com'])));
$R_columbia = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['email@email.com'])));
etc.

$S_boston = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['S_email@email.com'])));
$S_columbia = trim(stripslashes(htmlspecialchars ($_POST['S_email@email.com'])));
etc.

Thanks
