I have a web site where I have placed multiple contact email addresses. Is there a way I can create some sort of ditribution list (or something like that)so that a visitor that wants to email ALL contacts in that list, can simply download all the email addresses at once, rather than copying and pasting them all into an email one at a time??

Thanks D.

Dunno about that, I'm sure that there is...

The "Bot's" and "e-mail harvesters" will surely find that e-mail list, and may result in the owners of those address's getting lots of spam.

Rotarysteve is right, you could end up being cursed by the people on that list because you've given their email addy to every email scraper on the Internet! You've also got to get permission from those people anyway.

Can you try a form, instead, which requires a captcha?

As steve and DrP said, what you are going to do is not good, and I think it is illegal. If you really want to do it, then what you have to do is creating a PHP form which will call all the email addressees in the database and letting the PHP form to send the email to all the address(as we do in News Letters in web sites. Normally we create this kind of form by giving the access only to the admin). But I say again, You are going to make PRIVATE details PUBLIC, so that cannot be a good idea.
