View Full Version : Collect form data and send via email

11-27-2010, 02:50 PM
Let me first say that I do not know any of the languages except HTML. But I make out pretty good copying and pasting a script and modifying it to work for me.

I want to create a form to collect input data and mail it to myself.

It appears there are many ways to do it: mailto, Formmail, PHP, CGI, Pearl, ASP and probably others. I do not need to validate the input, just send whatever they fill in the form.

Most of the tutorials mention certain files need to go in the server cgi bin. I don't know anything about server side files so I also need to know where to put everything.

I have the form so what would you recommend for the rest of the coding?

Since your relatively new to this you might consider using a generator http://www.emailmeform.com/
