Normally 2nd and subsequent people to get
email should go in the CC: (or BCC:) field
but apparently you can do it by putting a
newline at the end of each entry in the
To: field.

See suggested change in your code below.

I think you can also change the following line,
At least that is how the code in the SmtpWriter.py
module I use does it.
