    Sending Forms

    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum and I'm not sure if this can be done in JavaScript. It's a very simple problem yet I'm not sure how to solve it. Anyways, here's my problem:

    On my website, I need to have users fill out an application form with their first name, last name, address, etc. Then when they click submit I need the data (formatted) to be emailed to a particular email address.

    That's it. Can I do this in JavaScript or should it be done in a database language?


    Thanks,
    Justin

    If you want it to be sent automatically without having the users use the installed default client like Outlook and send it, then you need a server-side language and an SMTP server to do it.
