Quick question... Free iPage web hosting will be used for photography? Hoping for any response. Second question.. I am an absolute beginner when it comes to forms, I have just tried to create one were people give me there info etc and click submit and it comes to me.......well I'm having trouble.

My form looks somthing like this:.

<form method="POST" action="mailto:">.

<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Email">.

<input type=hidden name="redir" value="index.htm">.

Form in here.....

</form>.

When I tested it, I filled it out and clicked submit but it just opened outlook with my address in the address bar.

Please help me!..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

I've got the same problem that ben_washington has...... Whenever I try to submit something on my form my e-mail program opens with the address in it...... Anybody know how to fix that?..

Ahem... still the new guy here buuut....

I think the below will make it much simplier..

The encrypt will make it much more readable when it arrives in your mail..

I would really recommend a form handler though as makes life sooooooooooo much easier..

For an easy FREE form processor I'd suggest.

I think what some of you are trying to understand is why your email pops up. The reason is because your "form action" is telling the form to send the information through an email (which is why Outlook opens) You will notice a new email ready to send when it opens which will have the details of the form on it..

As has been mentioned, it is much better to use some kind of form handling script. There are some good sendmail CGI scripts knocking about, just have a search for them...

Nebulus, the reason you have this problem is because you are using the.

<form method="POST" action="mailto:">.

<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Email">.

<input type=hidden name="redir" value="index.htm">.

Code, or something like this. If you'd like a more proffesional looking form, you should be implementing CGI forms. Dont know how to do this? Just reply...
