  Send Form Data to Email 
 Date Written 
That Guy May 31, 2008, 11:27pm EDT Report Abuse
I'm trying to write a small website, and am trying to together a page where a user can input their thoughts on the site and email that data to my email address. I need the email address to be sent entirely from the webpage. I do not want the user to have to use an email client (like outlook). If anyone has done this recently, or knows how, please let us know. Thanks.

You need a sendmail application (SMTP) on the server to do this. If you don't have access to Perl, PHP, ASP/ASPX, CGI, etc., you won't be able to do it all from the site. There are some hosts that offer a bounce back type service where you direct the form to their servers, the servers process it and send the email to the recipient. I'm not sure if there are any free offers to do that as I haven't needed such a service in a long time.

What host are you using?

If I remember what I forgot, I have not forgotten it.

I'm using IIS. I searched google, and found a php script, but it doesn't seem to work... I used to be able to use a page to send email, but now even that page doesn't seem to work... Any new suggestions???

You'll need to set up SMTP on the server to actually process the requests. This guide may help you:
