PHPMailer Question about using CC in Forms

P: n/a
My form processes the lines below just fine so long as there's
something in the cc field (which I'm trying to leave optional). If the
cc field of the form is left blank, I get an error. I need an if
statement where the cc is optionally blank and the $to still works. As
I have it, the $to line below works well because there's always going
to be an entry however again, the cc won't be used 100% of the time.
I was toying around with the if statement below but don't have it
figured out yet. Any help is appreciated. TIA

$mail->AddAddress($arrEmailAddress[$to]);
$mail->AddCC($arrEmailAddress[$cc]);
----------code below clearly not there yet for the cc field-----------
if ($cc=''''){
$mail->AddCC($cc);
}

I believe you would want

if ($cc != "") $mail->AddCC($cc);

do you mean?

if( $cc != '' )
{
$mail->AddCC($cc);
}

you could google for "conditionals in php" for more help on using if
statements, but my advice is - if you are this new to php coding, DONT
play with scripts, you could easily create a working spam bot, which
would quickly increase your headaches by many orders of magnitude.

If you are using input from a web form to send email, you need to be really
careful that spammers don't hijack your script.

As an example that can submit an email address for the "To" header then add
a whole bunch of other addresses in the CC or Bcc header.

You need to be really careful about checking for conditions like that, such
testing for new line characters, in the form information people are
submitting to you.
