    mail form Q: (theory)

    Hi, everyone.
    Here's the thing. Contact page has a *.pl set up for small mail form. While testing, it went through w/out error messages, kicked back to Thank You page. However, I'm not receiving the message.

    What gives? "Push" me in the right direction.

    Did you make sure your script is configured properly (particularly the path to your server's mail program)?

    Yes, I even called the tech support to double-check...

    It's probably obvious, but make sure all configuration variables are correct in the Perl script, and you have any necessary hidden fields in your HTML file (make sure they are in the correct form tag).

    Alternatively, your script may not be working - I recommend Matt's FormMail script at:

    thanks

    Everything seems to be right in order... It's puzzling to me!
    I may use other script (thanks, Adam) for functionality for now, but I would really like to solve this one (that's the whole idea - not just to get the script but to "get it").

    I'm totally lost now... - I found that I've put an absolute path where it didn't belong - I fixed that, so I'm getting messages. But now I'm not getting the thankyou page - though I didn't change anything on that part!

    Maybe I just need a drink.



    -----------------------

    OK, it was all my fault (stupid!) - I forgot that I =actually overtyped the thankyoupage filed with redirect for other purposes, but after a while of trying to figure it out all the little letters in the script started looking like ants to me!

    Anyway, thanks, guys.

    It's working fine now.

    I recommend Matt's FormMail script

    Please do not recommend Matt's scripts. Even Matt no longer recommends his scripts. Although the most popular, they are in fact among the worst scripts available (buggy and insecure).

    Security Focus put MSA FormMail attacks third in their list of the Top Attacks for the 1st Quarter of 2002.
