I have a repeater field, in which I ask for email addresses (among other things).
When the form is updated, I'd like to send an email to all the addresses listed in the repeater. I know how to trigger emails normally,  but I can't seem to find a way to do this - can anyone help?
Many thanks.

I suggest looking at this post.  You can use the solution for your use as well.

Hey thanks Rob. Something weird happened; our software/webdev guy was in today, so I asked him if he could shed any light. First thing he tried was simply putting the shortcode for the field in the email target field - and it worked. This is weird, because it was the first thing I tried, and it didn't. I tried it again, and it did. So in conclusion, the answer is much simpler than either you or I thought - just put the field from within the repeater (not the repeater code itself) in the 'Send to' field, and that seems to work. Who'd a thunk it? Thanks again, anyway.
