    Automatic E-mail reply


    I made a simple order form on:

    I would like to know if its possible to send the people who order a product an automatics reply?

    Would it be possible to send them something like:

    You order has been processed ........blabla

    Meaby even include the name of the person that made the order (but than you need to use PHP? or not)

    Hope somebody can give me an idea how to solve it

    You could try an autoresponder - try asking your email/hosting provider if they support them.

    Regardless if you're going to quote the user's name or not, you're still going to need to use a scripting language such as PHP or ASP. You have to instantiate an email object (of your choice), provide the necessary parameters (To address, From address, message, etc.), then use the object's "Send" function. Now the question you must ask yourself is this... Does my server support any server side scripting? If so, which ones?

    Edit: Of course, you could also look into davesw's suggestion!

    mail("$email", "Subject", "What you want in your body");

    $email is the name of the form field that holds their email.
