Getting the info to be sent
I made a comment page for my site. The only problem is when you fill out the information a pop-up comes up and says it will be sent by e-mail and stuff. But after you click ok it just go into your e-mail and makes it like you are about to compose a message, and the feedback is not sent. All I want it to do is for it to e-mail me the feedback. Here is the script I am using:
<font size=3 face=Rainbow6 color=green>
<title>Comments and Feedback</title>
<form method="post" enctype="text/plain" action="mailto:ANemail@example.com">
<feildset><legend>Comments and Feed Back</legend>
<p>Name: <input type="text" name="firstname" size="15" /><br />
E-mail: <input type="text" name="email" size="25" /></p>
Please write any comments you have or think:<br />
<textarea cols="40" rows="7" name="comments">
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />

The problem with 'mailto' forms is that they just dont work.
You need some kind of server-side processor to send the email properly.
Check out your host. they may have something called 'sendmail' and instructions on how to use it. otherwise, look thru www.hotscripts.com , as they have load sof email processors.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!
