If the problem is with getting the check box values;

here is the solution

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="mail_sc ript.php">
<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="email1@d omain.com"/>
<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="email2@d omain.com"/>
<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="email3@d omain.com"/>

<input type="submit" name="button" id="button" value="Submit" />


$mail = $_POST['email'];
var_dump($mail) ;

on selecting 1st and 3rd checkboxes, output will be
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. array(2) { [0]=>  string(17) "email1@domain.com" [1]=>  string(17) "email3@domain.com" } 
If the problem is with mail function;
You can pass multiple email addresses to php's mail function. read the manual here

And finally, I highly recommend you to use phpmailer for better performance.

I'm trying to send a packet of binary data to a UDP server. If I send a text string, it works fine. If I attempt to send binary data, it sends a UDP packet with 0 bytes of data (just the headers). I can see this because I'm running Ethereal and watching the packets. I'm defining the packets as shown below: $text_msg = "Hello, world\r\n"; $binary_msg = chr(0x01).chr(0x02).chr(0x03).chr(0x00).chr(0xA0); $binary_msg_size = 5;

I'm using MSW XP Pro with Python 2.4 to develop but production will be Linux with Python 2.3. (could upgrade to 2.4 if absolutely necessary) I can also switch to Linux for development if necessary. I am writing some python to replace proprietary software that talks to a timeclock via UDP. The timeclock extracts the sending port from the UDP header and uses that for all response messages.
