Hello all,

Sorry for the tardy reply. Dave, thank you for your insightful advice. It
was your observation that p_scnt jumps to 2 that helped me to capture the
email addresses with the following code:

my $i = 2;
    my @recipients = param('p_scnt');
    my $recipient;
    my $sbj = param('sbj');
    my $msg = param('edited_msg');

    while (param("p_scnt_$i")) {

        push(@recipients, param("p_scnt_$i"));


I did not modified the JS code so that it generates multiple IDs -- I
simply left it as is. This works for my needs because these email address
are merely being captured, validated and then used to send an email
announcement by the user -- they are not being saved or otherwise processed
in any other way. As long as it works is it okay not to fix it?
