Hi guys,
I have a website built with frontpage 2003 and am trying to email all my clients their details we have on record to check their mailing address.

If the mailing address is wrong i want them to update it via a form embeded in the email. I want the form to post data to a text file in my website.

Is this possible and could someone point me to a tutorial or give me a quick tip.

many thanks
Gecko

FP 2003 has a file upload feature. It works best on Windows servers because you can change the permissions of the folder for the upload

Many users can't or won't accept html mail. Best bet might actually be a link in the e-mail to a form on the site.

Sorry I misread part of it.

Plus I doubt the FP SE would actually work that way anyway. I think they have to be on the particular website.

thanks Guys :-)

Yes link to the form on the website is the one.

I guess what i was trying to achieve was to pass the old detail to the form before they updated it, that way i could track who they were and not have double ups.

cheers

You should still be able to do this. If you code the link to the form with something like...

example.com/update-mail.htm?oldaddress=johndoe@example.com

...and pass that to the "oldaddress" field in the form. Or something along those lines ;)

That's as far as I can go on that. Somebody else will have to suss out the details for you.
