Store owner e-mail variable...where is is stored?

I have added another inquiry form based on that of contact us with many additional fields. I would like to have it e-mailed to a different e-mail address then the one specified by STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS. I'm aware of how to change the store owner email in admin, but I don't want to change that, I just want to add an additional variable. Where is the STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS variable located? I have searched the forums, but I can't seem to find an answer...I'm sure this is simple and I must be overlooking the answer somehow. Anyway, all help is greatly appreciated!! :D

 

Thanks!!! :)

it is stored in the database. the configuration table. all those config variables are fetched in application_top.php and defined as constants....

// set the application parameters (can be modified through the administration tool)

 $configuration_query = tep_db_query('select configuration_key as cfgKey, configuration_value as cfgValue from ' . TABLE_CONFIGURATION . '');

 while ($configuration = tep_db_fetch_array($configuration_query)) {

   define($configuration['cfgKey'], $configuration['cfgValue']);

 }

Any suggetions on how to add another variable? I'm still not shure how to do what I want to do. Maybe there is just an easy way in the new contact_us.php (i named it partner_inquyiry.php) to forget the variable and just put the new e-mail address in..... Thanks for your help!!!

 

:D

at the top of 'contact_us.php' is this code:

if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['action']) && ($HTTP_GET_VARS['action'] == 'send')) {

   if (tep_validate_email(trim($HTTP_POST_VARS['email']))) {

     tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS, EMAIL_SUBJECT, $HTTP_POST_VARS['enquiry'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['name'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['email']);

     tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US, 'action=success'));

   } else {

     $error = true;

   }

 }

 

in your new form, just change STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS to the email address you want to use:

tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, '[email protected]', EMAIL_SUBJECT, $HTTP_POST_VARS['enquiry'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['name'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['email']);

or create a new variable and substitute that:

if($form=='contact_us') {

 $sender = STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS;

elseif($form=='new_contact_us_form') {

 $sender = '[email protected]';

}

tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, $sender, EMAIL_SUBJECT, $HTTP_POST_VARS['enquiry'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['name'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['email']);

or go straight to the php mail function, where the $to can be multiple addresses separated by commas:

$to ='[email protected], [email protected], [email protected]';

$header = 'From: me <[email protected]>rn';

mail($to,$subject,$message,$header);

Hi,

 

this was almost my question, but only almost. What can I do to add a second mail address in the store owner?

 

I tried the same as in "send extra order e-mail to", but that did not work.

 

Thx in advance
