Contact Us - Email Form


J

jimt

I'm using FP-2000 and have two problems.

1. I have two pages that has a "contact us" email form created with the
insert form feature. The form properties are: Send to radio button on, with
file name=_private/form_results.txt and the Email Address = the web
postmaster email address. The options are: file format = Text database using
comma as separater, include field names checkbox = on

The emails seems to work fine with IE. Some emails however are really
jumbled text in all field (from, subject, msg body). My best guess at this
point is the sender was using a non-IE browser such as Foxfire.

Is there a parameter or ??? I can set so non-IE browsers will work for form
to send emails?

The second problem is similar. I have an ASP page that displays the results
from an Access DB. The ASP work fine with IE but does not work at all with
Foxfire.

I've been through the FP help but have not found a parameter to allow other
browsers. I seem to remember something about allowing other browser I don't
remember where it's set in FP.

Help...
Thanks
Jim T.

Re - email fields:

As with the asp problem, the browser should not make a difference.
Could it be a case of Garbage in - Rubbish out?

Since you are using asp, you could use an asp script to process the
form, and include a validation field of some sort. Some examples of
validation fields are at
http://www.rxs-enterprises.org/tests/anti-spam/ though the "hidden
fields" method mentioned there would not stop the garbage.
