    &nbsp;<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="correoelectronico" SIZE="30">

    Where is mymail I put my email!

    But when I want to send a form first I have a mesage in spanish but like the web page shows email and dont punt a code for a informations of the form.

    Second I would like to send automaticly informations of a form to my mail.

    Yes, you need a PHP script to collect, format and then the information to your email. In your action, specify a script such as formprocessor.php and add the following code:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    //declare msg variable to help concatenate our message fields
    $msg="Name: " $_POST['name'] . "\n";
    $msg.="Email Address: " .$_POST['email'] . "\n";
    $msg.="Comments/Suggestions: " .$_POST['comments']. "\n";
    //use an additional variable to allow recipient to reply directly from this email
    $additionalheaders="From: " .$_POST['email'];
    //use mail function to send the mail, using all of four parameters
    mail("webmaster@domain.com""Contact Us"$additionalheaders$msg);
    //re-direct visitors to a success page
    header("Location:http://www.somedomain.com");
    //kill the script from executing any more
    exit();
    ?>
    This is just a START. Make sure you add any additional validation that you may require.
