Not quite sure what you are after but the select name value will be set to the value of the selected option. Are you using a scripting language after the form is submitted?
For example in php it would be something like
$email_text = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST[dSac['emailto_txt]']);
If this is for a "real world" application, are you sure you want to expose email addresses in your html?
Email address harvesters (bots) will swallow those up very quickly and say "YiuUUuumy - thank you very much".
Why not have some other values like company names, or whatever, as the option values and then when the selected option is sent to your server side form processing script you can get the associated email address for the selected option from a database, array, text file or whatever and then send the email with its message to the email address.
it will be a intranet service that im testing for now i dont have the rights to use the sql to put that in ,so i cant make any big changes
