I created a webform ( an order form) in FrontPage with the rest of my site. The site is up and working fine, however when the order forms and contact form arrive in the mail box they are blank. What did I do? and how can I fix it?

Hello and Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

How are you handling the form input to construct your email? There seems to be something gong on incorrectly at this stage. Check that to see if the message body is correct, and don't forget to set the proper headers.

inaparadise, welcome to WebmasterWorld.

Are you using FrontPage extensions to process the form? If so, does you server support FrontPage?

Thanks EElix and Marashall,
Yes Marshall I have the FrontPage Server Extensions turned on in the Hosting Server. And I have the form set to arrive in the inbox in HTML format. I used the Template to create an form and modified it to include the specific information I need to have. However I didn't touch any of the actual coding. At this point they now seem to be working, I am not happy with ho they are working, but at least I am getting something. Now they arrive in the inbox, but are very hard to read. What would happen if I set the form to arrive as "formated Text within HTML?" would this make it easier?
