First off, Is it safe to use a iPage web host to set up an online shop? Hoping for any response. My 2nd question... Hers the deal I have a form using IE5 and up..

The form I'm using is to be done without a cgi script.I just want it to go directly to my specified email.Heres my code. <Form Enctype="text/plain" Method="Post" Action="mailto:">.

<INPUT type=hidden value="Catalog Request" name=subject>.

In IE I get that message about this form is being submitted using email.Basicaly a privacy thing about your email address will be sent along with the form stuff.Then it opens my client application for email..Outlook Express and Nothing from my form is sent to my email address specified..Please HElp..Im confused!!!.How do you fix this????..

Yep, but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm it as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can give you help better...

Comment #2

I did some testing and found out it won't work in groupwise, but it worked on my machine IE6 and outlook express..

So it is ok for me...

Comment #3

Honestly, I don't know if this will help you or not, but here it is..

This will post the contents of the form into the body of the email. However, I can't get it to insert a line break between the values..

Information ends up like this: value1value2.

You can add spaces to sepearte the values..

Maybe someone can modify this to better suit your needs. I tried using the for the carriage return, but it didn't work..

Good Luck...
