Thread: send a form to an email

    send a form to an email


    I have been trying to find a way to send a form to an email using asp, ie.
    when the user submits the form, the content of the form will be formated
    properly, and send to the email. This is basic funtion that CGI can do,
    but I have been able to find how to do this using ASP. Can some one help
    me please.

    Thanks

    Forget CGI :-)

    ASP offers at least two ways I know of sending e-mails.

    You can use the CDonts object or ASPMail object.

    Essentially, on the ensuing page, you concatanate all your form data and
    then typically add it to Subject property of these objects. You can also
    send the e-mail to some fixed address or change it accordingly.

    Trust me bud...once you start using ASP or JSP, you'll wonder why you ever
    bothered with CGI in the first place (jk)

    For info on CDonts, just do a search on CDonts in learnasp.com or any of
    the 5-10 main asp sites including this one.

    For info on ASPMail check out this link:

    http://www.serverobjects.com/products.htm#aspmail

    take care

    yeah, that could be a problem.

    Do you own your own actual server or do you just have an account with some
    ISP?

    In theory, it should come with IIS 4.0 I think or something like that...
    take a look at this page:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/ps...do_for_nts.htm

    If you are with an ASP ISP which doesn't support proper ASP e-mail, just
    look around and there are some good ASP hosts out there. My favourite is
    Burlee.com..they are truly one of the best, but they support ASPMail only,
    which is just as good IMHO.
