work but now I get this error:

FrontPage Error.
User: please report details to this site's webmaster.


Webmaster: please see the server's application event log for more details.

Please help.

Thanks

Post a URL to the form page online so we can see the problem
- also contact your host for the details of the errors in the server's application event log

We would have to see the perl code in the formmail script to answer your
questions regarding the mal functioning of the form.
But as a first step, make the form tag a correct one:
Change
<form enctype="text/plain" method="POST" action="/cgi/formmail";>.
to
<form enctype="text/plain" method="POST" action="/cgi/formmail">

Notice the removal of the semi-colon and full stop.

Removing the optimisation from the page will also aid in debugging - it is
very difficult to decipher the code when it is on a total of 2 lines. And
some (albeit older) browsers will fail to render the page correctly with
long line lengths.

I made the suggested change - still no go. I can't understand wh it isn't
working as I have 3 other sites with forms that work perfectly. It has tbe
something stupid I have in there but I have no idea wha it could be. I even
copies a form page from a site that works and it won't work in this site.
Please help me - I am going crazy!!!!!

The page

http://branchwaterinc.net/cgi/formmail

does not exist.
This is the page that is supposed to process the form. It needs to be
uploaded, or the path to it corrected.

Incidentally, the latest version of formmail.pl (that I have seen) does not
require the email address to be readable in the page, and thus hidden from
spammers. As it is, you may as well use the FrontPage extensions to
process the form if your host supports email transport through the
extensions.
