How to SUBMIT results of a web form via email?

Anthony

Note: Please forgive my multiposting, as I am new to this and do not
understnad what addins, and client are.

What wer'e trying to do is let our customers fill out a survey that is on a
web form (html page).

When they click SUBMIT, we want the results of those 10 questions to be
submitted to us via email. That's it.

Please if you would, instruct me on how this can be accomplished.


Much thank you,

Anthony

Is the site hosted on a web server that has the FP extensions installed?

Was the form published to the server via FP's http mode (http://www.domainname.com ?

If yes, then the host has not configured the email function of the FP extensions son the server.

I'm not sure how to find out about this. My employer says that we should be
able to bypass the server, and just send the results in a plain text file
via email.

I don't think we should have to use WEB BOTS.

Am I forgetting something?

Again, when the user clicks SUBMIT, the results of the 10 questions should
be sent in a plain text file via email. Can this be done? if so, how?

Thank you for your fast responding! ; )

Then you will have to use custom written server-side scripting (ASP, ASP.net, PHP, etc.) to
accomplish.

Thank you, Thomas!

Could you explain a little bit more about this, I am so new to this.

Isn't there a way to send the results of a web based form via email? Do we
have to get CGI?

What about this link:
http://www.mv.com/webtools/forms-info/form-submit-ex-em.html#em

Is this a good option? (It says "cgi-bin" in the file path though)

I just have no idea where to get started.

Please, continue to offer your assistance. I appreciate it. ; )

You will have to check with your web host to see what they offer or support, if you are not going to
use the FP Form Handler (FP extensions required)

This can be done entirely on the client - no need for FP extensions or
webbots or server side scripting.

This example puts up one text box (param1) with a default value (adefault).
It can easily be extended for multiple inputs.

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
Data Entry<br>
<br>
Param1<input type="text" id="param1" value="adefault"/>
<br>

<script language="javascript">
var txt = "mailto:[email protected]";
txt += "?subject=" + "your%20subject";
txt += "&body=";
txt += "Param1 is '" + param1.value + "'";
// next line aids debugging
//document.write("txt =" + txt + "<br>");
var txt2 = "<a href=" + '"' + txt + '"' + ">send</a>"
document.write(txt2 + "<br>");
</script>
</body>
</html>

1. Only if a Email Client application is associated with the browser will this work

2. The users will get a privacy warning each time they try to submit a form that is processed in
this manner.
