Please help. Iam new in webdisign and I have made a form in dreamweaver. How do I make the form send the contents into my email address and give the sender a confirmation or thank you page?

you need a control script like cgi(perl), php or asp (there are loads more)

if you are hosting your site using a hosting company you need to find out how to setup email forms through your host.

if you are hosting it yourself then you will need a script to handle the mail submission.
