Help make my "send" button send a message to my email!
Hi there everyone,
I just completed designing my website but I need some help with one last thing before it is complete.
On the contact.html page, I have a section where potential clients can send me a message to my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). I created a "send" and "reset" button. Here's what I need some help with.
Once someone has typed out all of the information, when they click the "send" button, I want that to automatically send me their name, email, subject and message (the info they typed into the boxes) to my gmail inbox at the address above. I am not sure how this can be achieved, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
Here's a link to all of the files for my site (HTML, CSS, JS): http://ge.tt/9Ae9pjq/v/0

What server side languages does your hosting support? You need to obtain a form2mail script that is written in one of those languages.

Recommend using a server-side script language if your web site allows it. Otherwise, you will have to use a client-side dependent "mailto:" action to get the form info sent to you.
Your current hosting package or service MUST allow SMTP ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_...nsfer_Protocol ) to work. Otherwise, no email can be sent.
