Form / E-Mail script

looking for a script to send form based email

I am looking for a script that I can use to send form data via email from a website to mutiple email addresses. I would love to see the script format the email neatly... I would also prefer the script be ASP, or PHP as they are supported on my IIS 5.X server.

The script needs to be reliable as it is for National / International SALES LEADS.

Currently I am using formmail.asp but I keep getting told people are getting invalid ref errors and the email is not being sent/received

So basically the script has to have the ref checks removed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This tutorial first helped me when I started getting into form processing

try out:

hotscripts.com as this has lots of pre-made scripts, and also tips and tutorials, if you wanted to write something yourself (which in PHP is easy, in fact, it is in ASP).

If in ASP, you would be best off using a simple CDONTS mail form. In PHP, just use the mail() function.

Hope this helps.

After doing some research I made a script that did exactly what you want to do in PHP. It's rather nice too (I'm proud of it, can you tell?). If you'd like to see it just let me know.

this sure smells like spam to me

Why don't you use your listserv that comes with your hosting account?

unless of course you don't want to give the recipient of your mass mailing the chance to hunt you down or remove their email address from your list........

This is not for spam, and we host out own winnt server... except this server doesnt send mail we have a seperate mail server in california.

We are actually the ones who receive the email/form

So I need a script that can send the email to us. This form is a sales lead, where people come to my companies website fills out the profile to request more information from us.

Currently I have it set up on a FP extension, but we want to get away from the FP BS. So we need a solid solution.

I think I will buy ASPmail as that was recommended by a friend lastnight.

Hmmm, I would have thought anyone smart enough to figure out how to use formmail.asp would be able to write one of their own
