Hi Blanchard,
The flow is this:
1. User fills in html form
2. Values in form gets sent to a script on the server
3. Script generates email

You need to know which type of server side scripting (asp/php/cgi etc) your server supports to get further with this. If you don't know you can contact your host and they will help you with it. It might be that your host actually has pre-written solutions for you as well. If you are using a free or very cheap host it's unlikely though.

Good Luck!

Hello domedia,
just been on the telewest blueyonder site

ASP utilises ActiveX technology -- usually VB Script.

All files ending in .asp will be executed by ChiliSoft on the webspace service.

ChiliSoft version 3.6.2S.1032b runs on the webspace service.

I'm not an ASP guy so I can't help you there.
This is not very hard though, and I hope some of the members with ASP knowledge can give you the quick runthrough on how to do this.

You can get a free asp mail script from:

There are numerous other places for asp scripts, just do a google search on "asp form mailer"

Thanks domedia and gmcrone for the info.
I managed to find what I was looking for on my service providers site.

Thanks again
