Hello all..

Hope all are well

I have little hair left..

Apologies in advance, I have very basic DW knowledge, and coding hurts my brain..

I've been trying to get formmail to do its thing, but to no avail..

I've followed various, pretty clear instructions that I've found on the web, and have updated the .pl, copied into /cgi-bin, put the code into DW..

no joy, the fields clear and nothing happens

then I realised most of the posts I read were yeeeears old - am I missing something obvious / asking the wrong questions? Is there an easier way to email the results of a form?

If anyone can help me, I'd be really greatful,

Best

Ks

it a question of filling i the correct paramaters and making sure the path to the script is correct usually. there are many mailing scripts around so it depends on which you are using. personally i always use php for this rather than perl

Thanks for your answer edbr..

I ended up using my host's formmail er form.. which worked.. I'll probably learn something if I analyse the difference... but first, the next problem!

thanks again

:)
