    Mail Form

    Hi I am tring to make a Mail Form for my website.
    All the text will be sent to me from the website to my email account. (which I need to specify in the codes)
    2 buttons there
    clear and Send
    When send is clicked on it should not only send me the information to the desire email address but also go to the page with msg or a banner msg send.

    I wrote the codes refer few books but its only confusing me.
    Can some one be able to help me here.
    I am ready to send all the codes no problem.

    Form handler

    The easiest way to implement this would be to create a form handler in the server side scripting language of your choice, or make use of an exisiting script. That way, you can make use of basic HTML form functionality and reduce the risk of spammers picking up on the reciever's email address.

    Another post recently pointed out the risk of email injection with forms like these, but again a server side solution would offer the best opportunities to tackle that issue, too.

    Can you tell us if your host supports a server side scripting language such as PHP or ASP?
    Regards,
    Ronald.
