adding additional email to cart
edited October 2009
I'd like to put another email address on my cart--i.e., I have someone managing orders for me, and I'd like her to get the orders
in addition to me
. Can I do that, and where do I put in her email address?

EMails will be copied to both the main store email (assuming you have the option set) and the category specific admin email addresses. However, we use email distribution lists in our mail software set for each customized category admin email, and then manage who is included in the list from there...in some cases we have 1 recipient, in others about 5. (I would use the category emails for this and not the store email, since you can customize them...and also be sure only order information is sent to your distro list.)
Would something like that work for you?
To clarify, in case it's not clear, when tookings says "email distribution lists" that can be as simple as something like firstname.lastname@example.org that then forwards to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Google Apps (which is pretty great, and free) it's easy to set up. In most other systems it's also quite easy as well.
O.k., I think. Thanks, guys. I will try to do this, but am still unsure as to where to put in the information.
O.k., so when I go to "Settings," there's a "Store email" blank, but room for only one email.
I can't tell who's handling your email, but it'd be a two part process.
First, create an email address on your end (not FoxyCart) that takes something like email@example.com and forwards it on to the multiple email addresses you need.
Then, in your FoxyCart admin, add firstname.lastname@example.org as your store email address. So FC sends to orders@, and your mail system takes that email to orders@ and sends it off to the multiple email addresses you want.
