I have a form with the fields I want, i want to have this form emailed to [email protected]

I don't want the email client to open on the machine of those filling the form. I have a cgi folder on the server, just need to know how to get this done.

Let me know if I need to be more specific.

Okay, if you want to cheat, but unfortunatly you get a security message,

put the form action to "mailto:[email protected]"

but if you want to go down the cgi path then you need to do this

http://www.perlfect.com/articles/sendmail.shtml

however, i would STRONGLY recomend php, as i just love php and its the easyest way of processing data methinks.

PS(if you want to check if your host can support php, make a file like test.php , and have one line inside it <? phpinfo(); ?>, if it does nothing then you dont have php then your stuck using cgi, if it gives you this huge blue and white page then your good to go)

it worked for me, be sure to follow the instructions on the php page, you need to change a few things like target email and stuff. (boo hoo, yes you have to edit php). And no i didnt suggest this because ive never used it, i used it to make the #lg gnomie map, and had over 50 emails.

Here is the php code. What do I edit to get the email sent to the correct address?

I played with this area,

($i=0;$iI NEED VALID RECIPIENT EMAIL ADDRESS ($recipient_to_test) TO CONTINUE")

???

// for ultimate security, use this instead of using the form

$recipient = "[email protected]"; // [email protected]

thats the line that takes YOUR email, change [email protected] to your own email and it should work

also

// referers.. domains/ips that you will allow forms to

// reside on.

$referers = array('waterdrawsllc.com');

change waterdrawsllc.com, to yourdomain.com too
