Formmail Or Form Mail http://mydomainname.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I would like some guide on formmail (or form mail) when submitting via HTML.


When I tried to use http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/, where "mydomainname.com" is my domain name I get an error saying:


Sorry I can't send to test999@hotmail.com. Is test999@hotmail.com on this server ?


Part of my script calls for

<span style='color:blue'><form action="http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ name="myform" onSubmit="return validateForm(this)"></span>


Above is the exact line from my coding. Am I missing something? Would I need to insert "method="POST" as well? In the past trial, the error message was POST not allowed in this server.


Furthermore, where could I find more about the variables associated with FormMail.cgi? I would like to make sure that I am using correct variables and not making my own.


Thank you in advance

But, before I go on and start celebrating with a bottle of wine I picked up from France, does Xisto allow form mailing via the server?


I have noticed that some hostings would not let users use this feature fearing that it will lead to mass mailing application (just another way to send spam witout getting caught/costing money). If it's alright to send form to myself from my site, i.e. feedback, contacts, questions, and data capture, I'd like to write a detailed step by step on how-to's with formmail.


I wasn't sure if this forum already had this how-to's but I couldn't find one. Unless, it was deleted to protect the reputation of Xisto?


Anyway, hoo ray!
