in reply to Single variable Multiple Values

I am having trouble making $emailverify = Bob in turn making Bob = $to and sending the file to Bob or Tim.

Where to start?

Perl has got all kinds of variables. You are using scalars in your code most of the time. That's the type of variable that generally fits a single value in it. With a little help from perlintro you will find arrays for variable lists and hashes for variable lists representing relationships of keys values. And of course references and objects that may virtually be or do anything or everything.

However, you use a scalar, a single thing variable for an email address, and I think all you need now is that.
You can concatenate a string in a scalar like this:

$email = $email:1 . "," . $email_2;

A number of email programmes treat such a string the way you want them, as a list of email addresses separated by the comma (",").

Your mileage may vary ;-)
