The web hosting company is Network Solutions so I'm sure I have a CGI folder to work with in the hosting plan if that's what is needed.
Could somebody please point me in the right direction? Thanks a million!
an extensive form for a loan application
Does the form contain any confidential or personally-identifying information? If so, then you cannot send it by email, as email is not encrypted. In fact, there may be legal implications for your client if you do choose this method.
If this is the case, then you will need to have the form displayed on an secure (https) page and possibly submit to a database which is accessible by the client via a secure connection.
Their attitude was "convenient like it is". I completed my initial consultation, made detailed recommendations, cashed the check, and refused to handle any of the work that they wanted done myself, or to consult further. It was clear that it wasn't an issue of 'not knowing' the risk. They didn't care. It was clearly a third-tier finance company and the more I looked at what they had, the more I wanted to finish up and get out.

There may be legal implications for you as well.
There are probably some workable email encryption options, but I would second encylo's first thought that sending details to a secured database is probably the best option. It's going to need to be in a secured database at some point anywat. Might as well be programmed from the start.
