Can Magento automatically send an email to a vendor when an order is placed?

Can products on Magento have an email address tied to them so when an order is placed an email gets sent to the correct vendor automatically?  I would need the ability to tie different vendor email addresses to different products, as I have multiple vendors.

This is not currently possible out-of-the-box.

I found an extension in Magento Connect called Unotify vendor. I tried it out but I haven’t gotten it to fully work yet. Its in alpha so if/when the author completes it then our problems are solved.

All you need is to add custom attribute ‘vendor_email’ and check this attribute after order is placed.  There is an appropriate event, as far as i remember. You can find more info about magento event handling here - http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/customizing_magento_using_event-observer_method

Go to System, Configuration, Sales, Sales E-mails, then to the Order tab, then add an e-mail address to the send order e-mail copy to field…

Add as many e-mail addresses as you want separating each with commas....

Has anybody gotten this to work in 1.4.1.1?

It worked find in 1.3.x, but we are having no luck in the latest version. We tried contacting Boris, but have received no response for more than a month. Hope he is OK. He puts out good stuff.
