Form results. Creating an email page.

Guest

When sending form results to an email address, the email is not really
suitable if you want to print and file it as a record of a customers request
or order. On the other hand the confirmation form can be editted to look
really great so that the customer can print a copy of their order for their
records.
Does anyone know if you can send to confirmation form to email or
alternatively, can I setup my own form with a more business look to it, that
will be sent when the "submit"button is pressed?

Only with server side coding to send the Form
- that depends on your Host OS and what they support

If on a Windows server that supports ASP you can use CDONTS or CDOSYS in html format
(see http://www.interlacken.com/winnt/tips/tipshow.aspx?tip=46 )
- but remember that if the user only accepts emails as plain text they will never look the same

Hi! You can creatre a separate page (url) with your own confirmation info on
it. In the form dialog boxes. When you have created your form, right-click
any of the text boxes (or submit button). Click on the form properties
button. Then click options button lower left. You'll see a tab for
confirmation page. That will allow you to tell Front Page to redirect the
visitor to your own confrmation page rather than a standard one they get
otherwise. Of course, create your page first so you know your url for it.
