It is submitted to a program on the web server and then mails to the client. I am not familiar with PHP, this is my client, but they paid someone else to create this whole thing, then fired him. Now they want me to fix it. It doesn't look that hard, I just need to know how. They are not against changing the entire process. I could do something else. But a lot of work has gone into this already. If there was a simple solution. How do I parse the email staying with PHP? It is the entire email that needs to be re-routed, they do not even want to see it or read it. This web site gets a lot of hits and numerous email requests. Thanks for your help.

So do you mean the form's in a PHP-generated page that submits using `mailto` or is it submitted to a program on the web server that mails it to the client? If the latter, that program could easily parse the form data and send the mail to whoever based on the ZIP. OTOH, if you're trying to re-route actual email, you could use procmail, or initially send the email to an account with a .forward file pointed at a simple php/perl/sh script to parse and forward.
