CGI script form to email

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Hi all,

I am desperately seeking some guidance/help for this project.  I have
designed a form using html and it is designed to collect feedback from
a user.  It is now on a web server, but I don't know how to get it to
return results to an email address when the submit button is pressed.
I have tried using the <form method="post"
which requires outlook express to communicate with hotmail which it
won't do.

So I presume I need a CGI script to do this, has anyone done this
before who could tell me what I need to do?? I need this done
desperately by Wednesday if this is possible.

Thanks alot

If you're using php, check out the mail() function.

It will allow you to collect the information and if $_POST variables  
exist, mail them to whereever.  It's a straightforward bit of coding.

Good luck.
