    could be wrong but I think you need a little bit of javascript there. But I don't know, forms aren't exactly my specialty.

    Post Forms

    I built a short form to subscribe to my daily e-mail newsletter, but I need to separate the subscriptions in 4 differrent categories. So the first field is e-mail address and then I have 4 radio buttons with the names of the four categories.


    Is there any way to setup a form in plain html so when I get the e-mail with the information, the category the user selected is in the subject of the e-mail?

    Here's the link to the beta version of this form if you want to see it: http://www.insurancejournal.com/html/temp/subscribeV2.htm

    Thanks for your help.

    Question

    Hi Arte,

    Is your form ACTION="mailto:etc?

    If so, I cannot think of a way to get an input into the subject.

    If your processing it in some way, then you could alter the CGI script.

    The easiest way(forme, 'cos I know how to use it) would be with PHP. Its by far the easiest thing to process forms with.

    Find out if your server uses php. If so, I'll whip up a little mail script for you that does just what you ask.

    Thank you both for your replies. I actually figure it out. I am using a simple Method = Post so all I needed to do was to get an input in the subject. So it looks something like this:

    <input type="radio" name="Subject" value="Agents/Brokers">
    Agents/Brokers
    <input type="radio" name="Subject" value="Risk Managers">
    Risk Manager
    <input type="radio" name="Subject" value="Carrier Executives">
    Carrier Exec.
    <input type="radio" name="Subject" value="Other" checked>
    Other
