My wife has a DotNetNuke website for her non-profit, and a that site has a "Contact Us" page. The "Contact Us" module only allows for the entry of a single email address as the recipient of the contact email.

She would like to setup something like a "[email protected]" type of email address, and then have any emails sent to that address automatically forwarded to a list/group of people in the organization, so that any one of those people can respond.

My first thought was to setup something like a Yahoo Groups type of thing, but this organization deals with medical/patient issues and she is concerned about HIPAA and privacy issues caused by using a public group like that.

It is possible that I could try and re-code the module for DNN, but that's a lot of work.

Is there a technology or service to handle this type of thing?

Thanks - Todd

    Check your mail server control panel/feature list -- it may support Mail Groups/Mail Lists. If it does -- create one and assign the members -- it will do exactly as you have described.

  • Agreed. Mail forwarding seems like the easiest way to do this. No coding required.

Most control panels have an option to set up mail forwarding to lists. Check there first, or if in doubt, contact your web host.
