    Question Troubles with form emailing.....................

    Hi,
    Is there a code out there where I can make my own feedback form, then when the user fills out all the information, that information gets emailed to me? Thanks to all.

    Try mailto:

    Well, in it's simpliest form, you can code it this way:
    Code:
    <form method="post" 
       action="mailto:qhx398@myqhx398site.com" 
         enctype="text/plain">
    <input type=text 
       name=your_comments>
    <input type=submit 
       value="Submit Your Comments">
    </form>
    Mailto looks great, and may even work on your machine. But it doesn't work reliably for all visitors to your site. Whether or not a visitor can use this method depends on the mail client installed on their computer. And unfortunately, there's no way to test if that's the case for each of your visitors.
    This can lead to the worst kind of situation where someone takes time to fill-up you feedback, then finds that they can't send the information to you!
    ...this is not the recomended solution...You're been warned...

    Just ask them to email you with there details, or have a look at php forms
