    Scary messages

    Can someone please do me a favour. Go here and fill in details (Unless you want to be signed up for the newsletter I'd use fake details). Thenhave a look at the messages that come up. Is there anyway to stop these coming up as these would put anyone off actually signing up.

    I would say use php instead of a mailto but I know that freewebs does not support php, but you can link to an off site php file if you need to.

    I don't know that much about PHP so I'll have to learn it first. Thanks.

    It comes up with an alert saying that "this website is automatically sending information which could be a virus", blah blah blah that sort of thing. What I'm wondering is if there is a better way to have this layed out which stops warnings coming up. What I have at the moment is this:

    <form action="MAILTO:namikmusik2@yahoo.co.uk" method="post" enctype="text/plain">
    Name:<br>
    <input type="text" name="name"
    value="" size="20">
    <br>
    Email address:<br>
    <input type="text" name="mail"
    value="" size="20">
    <br>
    <br><br>
    <input type="submit" value="Send">
    <input type="reset" value="Reset">

    </form>

    Does this look ok to everyone or can you give me a few pointers on how to improve this?

    It doesn't usually happen when I sign up for other mailing lists though.

    that's maybe because they don't use mailto forms, but rather post the info to a serverside application which parses the form into a DB. that's how that functionality is usually (nae always) done.

    I see. Hmmmm. I reckon that sounds easy enough to do. Thank you.
