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@…

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.

I agree, Outlook is not a standard !

Both semicolon and comma is a good idea.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea, but it'd be a big patch. It's also a bit of an edge case. A simpler solution is setting up an e-mail address that forwards to all of the admins. admins@…

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.
