Sending Form Data via E-mail

If you don't feel like messing with CGI scripts and can deal with not having your data perfectly formatted (or pre-processed by a script), you can have a visitor's data be sent to you via e-mail.

To send form data via e-mail:

1.
Type <FORM METHOD=POST.

2.
TypeENCTYPE="text/plain" in order to format the incoming text.

3.
Type ACTION="mailto:you@site.com", where you@site.com is the e-mail address where you want data from the form to be sent.

4.
Type >.

5.
Create the form's contents, as described on pages 196-216.

6.
Type </FORM>.
