It could be great to have multiple administrator email, separated with a semicolon.
It is very usefull when you have more than 1 administrator on the blog.

example : root@…; admin@…; admin2@…

Change History (9)

Is there a standard or preferred way of separating lists? Personally I would use a comma, or because of the nature of the list we could even use a space, although I don't see why a semi-colon wouldn't work either. Or maybe even both semi-colons and commas?

Outlook use both semicolon, that's why I said semicolon.

Both semicolon and comma is a good idea.

  • Keywords admin email 2nd-opinion removed
  • Milestone 2.4 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Just set up a forwarder account. I don't see how this is practical or useful.

This would be useful. Managing the recipients of WordPress notifications would be most onvenient and logical in WordPress admin panel.

Plugins like Events Manager already implement this for their own notifications. WordPress core notifications deserve the same high user-friendliness.

Question is whether this should be implemented in core or as a plugin.
