Magento: Sending the info in the contact form to several email addresses

By default Magento only has one filed to input the recipient of the contact form (in admin).
If you would like to get this sent to several email addresses then a small hack is required as Magento adds some encding to address in this field.

Use>, name <

to send to two recipients. name is the name shown as the address in the second mail.

Send contact form to two mail addressesv

To send to 3 addresses use>, name <>,name2<

To sent to 4 or more, just add more as in the 3 addresses example
