Default Passing a Variable

I am retrieving a member list from a password protected site and am developing a mailer to allow the members to send emails to some or all of the group.

Two records (of several) retrieved from the mySQL database are member name ($name) and email address ($email). I would like to print a list of member names w/ check boxes. The email address would not be shown. I was hoping to store the email address in VALUE, but that doesn't seem to be possible.

Checked names would receive emails as I would $_POST entires from the the check[] from the mailer The difficulty is in storing the email address in the VALUE. This compiles, but I am unable to determine value. (echo value, echo $value, echo $check[] -- none work

<input type="checkbox" name="check[]" value="$email">
<echo "$name";?>

gives me a check box w/ the members name next to it, but how will I pass the email address?

doesn't work. is a str_replace possible?

Regards & Thank you, --Larry
