Question Question for DreamweaverMX users

I have got a question for Macromedia DreamweaverMX users.

I have Macromedia DreamweaverMX 2004 and I created a form and when the user clicks on submit, I need information for what to do from there. Could I have the information sent to me by email? If so, please help me out. I'm all open to any other ideas. Thanks so much.

You would either have to have a cgi script tell the form what to do or you could have it sent to e-mail, but I forget how to do this. Let me do some digging.

I just tryed this and I have one problem. I tested it out and I got this message in IE; "This form is being submitted using email. Submitting this form well reveal your email address to the recipient, and will send the form data without encrypting it for privacy. You may continue or cancel this submission." I pressed continue but didn't even send anything. Maybe email isn't the way to go. A lot of people have these forms, but I don't understand how they recieve the data. Any ideas?

If you'd like to learn a little server side programming you could make one yourself very easily. Try to learn ASP.NET, it's got what you need.
http://www.hotscripts.com/ is bound to have something premade if you don't want to make it yourself.

you can use the mailto syntax which is at the following URL :

http://www.ianr.unl.edu/internet/mailto.html

<a href="mailto:user@domain.com">

Doing this uses a mail client such as out look express as far as I am aware though!
