Preferred Solution: HTML E-mail Form

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: HTML E-mail Form

In the opening Form Tag you would put the following parameters:-<form action="mailto:insert the email address here" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="insert a name here" id="insert an ID here">Be careful. This is not a very secure way of sending data. If you are collecting data from potential customers then you have a legal responsibility to protect that data. It is OK to collect data like names or email addresses this way but it is not OK to collect sensitive data.

YOu only need to name the form elements if there is scripting that needs to reference that element name for some sort of processing. Passing variables from one page to another is a good example.

Question: HTML Form

Hi. I am a begginer webmaster(!)

I was wondering if any master-coders out there could help me with a form i was building. There are two problems on it. When you hit submit, it runs posting via Outlook or Outlook Express which in turn asks the sender if this is ok and warns him it is a nor secure connection. I'm feeling this is worrying potential buyers. I'm sure there must me a way to send this info without using a mail provider.

Another problem: I have just added a new funky way of ordering, using an add button to move the selection accross to another box, but these selections are not sent along with the rest of the form.

Please help. Paul.

(PS) I will add the form as an attatchment if requested.

Hey guys,

Been struggling with an email pre-authorization form (html based and being submitted via PHP). At first I tried a fillable PDF form but that did not work out as the only output I could get in IE and Chrome was in XML which my client does not want so I have reverted to PHP to handle the sending of the form and data. So, I have modified some code I found (which originally worked) but I am not getting the email to send. The url to the test bed is here so you can check it out and see that it does not create the email needed. I'm certain it is merely an error in the coding someplace (I think it is something to do with the error checking). I am not a PHP programmer and am requesting someone here to look at it and at least steer me in the right direction. I really need an answer fairly quick guys so please help out here. Here is the PHP code:

if(isset($_POST['email'])) {

$email_to = "[email protected]";
$email_subject = "test of halford submission php ver.";

function died($error) {
// your error code can go here
echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";
echo "These errors appear below.<br /><br />";

I'm learning how to write websites in HTML and I just learned the <form> command and the different form elements you can use with it. When I set the command to MAILTO:[email protected] it opened up my computer's default mail program. I'm wondering if there's any way to have the information sent to my e-mail without using an external program.

Answer:HTML form programming

Yes, with the mailto in the href, the client's default email software is invoked, which
exposes the target email address.

The other choice is to send a message to the webserver where cgi programming forms parameters to the sendmail api on the webserver itself. This hides all the email addresses and allows extra data to be inserted in the message.

Instead of an href with mailto, the form action is used to point at your cgi program on the websever to process all the forms data.

Answer:Online form in html

You need a form handling script, which takes the information the form user inputs and turns it into an email which is then sent on to the address you specify in the handler script.Most people use either a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) or PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) script.Your choice could be governed by what the web host supports where the site is currently hosted. If you are allowed to run your own CGI scripts and you have a CGI bin you can obviously choose to use a CGI script. Where the web host supports PHP you can opt to use that instead.PHP scripts are usually easier to get your head around than CGI when you are first starting out. Most PHP scripts need no file permissions assigned to them, while pretty much all CGI scripts need permissions assigned to allow them to run using CHMOD on Apache servers, or by using the built in permissions tools in your FTP client.Here are some links for you to try for PHP form handlers:click hereclick hereclick hereAnd for CGI scripts: click hereI'd plump for PHP if your web host supports it. Instructions for use are on the various script sites and included when you download them.T

How do I create a form with text fields and a submit button and enable it to store the data and email it to an address?

Answer:html submittable form

You use HTML to make the form and then use PHP or Perl or whatever other language that is capable of sending data to send it.
Example form:


<form method="POST" action="send_data.php">
Data1: <input type="text" name="data1" /><br />
Data2:<br /><textarea name="data2></textarea><br />
Data3: <input type="password" name="data3" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Send" /><input type="reset" value="Reset" />

And the php function you need is mail();.

You can also search the forums for examples, here's one from a few months ago:

does anyone know an application/program that would do this:1. Design a form that could be used on a web page (in HTML) where users could input data.2. There needs to be a "send" button on the form and when the user presses this, it extracts various pieces of the data and sends it to me as an email.I have had a qucik look around and can find something that will "design" the form (MS Front Page), but get lost with the "extraction and emailing" bit. I suspect that this may be because the web server that I use does not support the appropriate extensions - but not sure on this.

I have designed a form to send me feedback from users - it's very simple but serves what I need.

Anyhow, I am not allowed to use cgi scripts on the server - so I am trying to use the following command:

<form method="post" enctype="text/plain" action=" from Making the Most of Santiago" >

From Firefox, this seems to work ok with either Eudora or Outlook. From IE, the subject and e-mail address work, but the body of the e-mail is not filled out.
Is this a limitation of IE, or am I doing something wrong?

Answer:html FORM with mailto:

Being fairly new to forms, I cannot give you a perfectly accuate answer. But my answer would be, maybe part of both.

I had a basic html form and had lots of trouble with different browsers treating it differently. IE seemed to be the most friendly, while netscape sent the data in a file which had to be downloaded and parsed.

I gave up and searched for a cgi script and after a couple of days I finally got one working like I needed. I will now advance to php for more interactive scripting. I found a real budget hosting plan with cgi at

Could somebody please take a look at the HTML for the form> tag on click here and confirm it is coded OK. The form submit fails with an 'Internal Server Error'. The script is definitely present within cgi-bin and CHMOD = 755.If this looks OK, I would like to follow this up with a check on the parameter coding within the script itself. But first things first!The current syntax of the Form> tag has evolved from that generated automatically by Dreamweaver MX which gave persistent HTTP 405 errors - so things have moved on a little!p.s. if you decide to try the form there are numerous mandatory fields, so just insert any old rubbish to complete it!Many thanks, M - HTML form - fails

The address to the formmail script should be cgi-bin/ and not the full URL of the siteThe form should have the following fields: <form name="form1" method="post" action="/cgi-bin/"> <p> <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Title of the email subject" /> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="Full URL including http of the 'thank you for contacting us' page" /> <input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="email address of the recipient" />You can specifiy most of this in the script if you know how, but the above is probably the simplest method for getting it to work.The Formmail script itself should have this for its first line [sometimes differs from one host to another]:#!/usr/bin/perlThe next unxommented line is the address of your email program script on the server:$mailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t';@referers = ('your site URL without www','your site URL with www','you can use localhost as well if required');@recipients = &fill_recipients('your site URL without the www','again you can leave localhost in if required');And that should get you running.You can alter and configure lots more but normally you don't need to and the above will take pretty much any form field type you could mention and process it correctly when passed through the script.One last thing: you may want to rename to something else like or whatever, then change the reference in the form to point to that file in your cg...

I tried before and after the "submit" input (the logical place), with no luck (does it matter where I put it?).

Additional button [Calculate] to be located to the right of "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and when clicked will calculate the product of "Amount" and "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and place the newly calculated value in "Calculated Total". Database fields exist for all form fields and are named as seen in the source. I am assuming javascript is necessary to accomplish this. My javascript skill is very limited. I am also assuming there is no reason the javascript will not work if placed inline on the same page. "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" field and "Calculated Total" field should not be editable by user.

This CMS system allows HTML to be used where needed. I can copy the HTML from this type of form (which is built using a site tool) and place the HTML into a new site page, edit the HTML so as to reformat the layout of the table, customize attributes such as placeholder text and other changes.

I hope this is enough information. If not, feel free to ask.


Answer:HTML & javascript form field value calculation

Hello All...

Another thought I guess is that javascript could be disabled in the user's browser. The more I consider this, the more I believe that I could do without storing the calculated total especially knowing that results could be skewed based on user's browser. Amount, Item Name and multiplier used in Fee are required. Others are not. However, I still wish to display the calculated total if the user wishes to click the [Calculate] button to see it.

Make sense?

Question: Form to Mail

I am moving my site from the Geocities server to the Verizon one and am having trouble with the form to mail script.

The instructions are as follows:

This script allows you to provide HTML forms in your pages for users to provide information, which will then be converted into e-mail format and sent to you. It is superior to using a mailto: in a form's ACTION in that the e-mail it sends will be formatted rather than raw data.

You can design the form according to your own preferences and desires, customizing it to gather the precise kinds of information you need, and only you (or others whom you authorize to receive e-mail on your behalf) will have access to the information that users provide through the form.
NOTE: You must be a registered Verizon
user to use this script.

The new script, form2mail.exe includes a number of enhancements to the previous script ( "form to mail" including the ability to ...

* Specify the "SUBJECT" and a "FROM" field in the e-mail message
* Check for errors and omissions in the form to make sure that the user has supplied all the information you intended to gather
* Record the precise date and time the user submitted the form
* Customize the format of the mail message by using a template file

Instructions for using these intermediate options are provided after the general instructions, below.

Question: Form Mail Merge

Hi All

I want to Create a MS Word mail merge template based upon this pdf:

Map all fields to csv data source. Resulting Word doc will be printed and scanned.

Please guide how it will be done?


Shehbaz H.

Answer:Form Mail Merge

Why, if you have the data source, would you do a mailmerge, then print & scan the output? Do you need the data in some form that it can't be produced from the data on demand?

Regardless, before you can do anything, you will need to convert the PDF to a Word document.

From then on, it's essentially a matter of inserting mergefields to populate the various 'fields' in the document. You can do that by using Word's Mailmerge helper, available via the Mailings tab on the Ribbon. Assuming the checkboxes are to be checked/unchecked as appropriate, those will need replacement with fields coded like:
{SYMBOL {IF{MERGEFIELD CheckBox \* Upper}= "TRUE" 254 168} \a \f Wingdings}
where 'CheckBox' is the data field name.

Note: The field brace pairs (i.e. '{ }') for the above example are all created in the document itself, via Ctrl-F9 (Cmd-F9 on a Mac); you can't simply type them or copy & paste them from this message. Nor is it practicable to add them via any of the standard Word dialogues.

ok got a qick question.. I tried to find out the answer on my own to no avail so here goes. Ive been recently put in charge of a site newsletter. formerly pretty lame with just a few lines of plain text Ive added alot of content and its all put together using dozens of tables. With dozens of links and alot of text formatting along with a few images. Its a pretty heavy html document. In review with the other site staff. The question was brought up, "what if someone has HTML disabled in thier email?" Ive tried, but cant find an email that allowes html completly disabled, so I was hoping someone could help me here.. my main question is.. would it show up at all? just be a bunch of jargon? what??? AND, If I just put a bit of plain text before all the coding, would that show up? Say I put something like... "this messege is in HTML format, if you cannot view the below newsletter or have HTML disabled, please point your browser to the following address http://page_where_newsletter_is_hosted"

would that work ok???

unfortunatly I need to send out the newsletter tomorrow.. day after at the latest.. I would really hate to have to wait another month to send It. But if I dont know how it will look to the viewers im afraid I will have to use the plain text version this time around

does anyone have any helpfull information????

thanks in advance

*~peace and love~*

Answer:HTML E-Mail *URGENT*

The option is in the email client and it is usually "View mail in plain text". If that is set, then the email will display as the HTML source. There's not much you can do about that.
You can get really clever and put a reference to a script in your email. This script would binary write out an image and you use this to track the hit to the email (i.e. when the script is hit it updates some database). If the hit is recorded then the user has HTML enabled, if not then it was read in plain text or not read at all.
So you could, based off this, set an option in the database for the email for "TEXT VIEW" or something that denotes it to be a text email to be sent out. Then when your emailer reads the database and sees this bit set to "TEXT EMAIL" then it will not send the HTML email, it will send a text version of it.

Answer:E-mail inpout in HTML doc.?

Depending upon what your host supports, you can do a variety of things. But I'm under the assumption that you don't have any server-side scripting, so you may want to try Bravenet or HTML Tools or whatever they are called nowadays that offer you free little scripts like "mail me" so that users can email you. But you pay the price with ads. Meanwhile, if you did have PHP or ASP or CGI, you can either write your own (which is actually not that difficult once you get to know the language) or find a free easily customizable one on the net. Hope that helps.

I made a form in Microsoft Word 2003 that is fill-able and need to email the form out to 183 different organization with personal data from each organization in their form. For this reason, I created the form, then did a Mail Merge that had the data I needed. When the merge was complete, all of my Text Form Fields had been deleted. The blanks are still there but the Text Form Fields are not. I would like to be able to lock the document so that they will not be able to type in the question areas but if I lock it without the text form fields, they can't type anything at all. I tried locking the document before I did the merge in a hope that it would keep the form fields there, but Word would not allow me to merge the document if it was locked. I would really enjoy not having to go through 183 documents and add form fields in all the spots that got erased. I guess I could go through 183 copies of the same document and type the data by hand, but I am really hoping there is a way to get mail merge to put my information in the document without removing my text form fields.

On questioning my host, they said all script to e-mail must have a from and to address to work, ive done just that no help. As well as this, they confirmed i cannot change the permissions.

I think the prob is the permissions as the user cannot use the write permission the data is not beging sent.
Of one example of the scripts i have used loads of people say they work but they dont for me!

and yes i am uploading the sripts in the correct mode using ftp

If ive missed any info out, please let me no

Any ideas would be great!

Thanks a bundle in adv... Read more

I have dial-up server. the dial-up form that appear everytime I log on-line. well when I get mail it tells me at the bottom of the form. the dial-up forn has my mail box on it besides IE Icon. when I get mail sometime not all a internet error report form will appear. so I have to send it. after I have sent it. the dial-up form disappears. so I have to go to the mailbox icon on my screen to get the mail. after I go get the mail. I click on my dial-up icon to make the form reappear. so everytime when the form comes up for the first time it tell you about mail count. But of course I have just gone to the mail. so when it goes to show me it of course will say zero. so when there is zero mail it will let the dial-up form stay. so also when I'am out at a web site and get mail. It also will do it. so if someone has a answer I would love to hear it. Mary

We need to send a form with it's data via e-mail when a record is either entered or updated.
My idea was to attach a command button to the form but I can't work out how to send the current form as an attachment via Outlook so that the form and it's data is displayed.
The standard formats aren't sufficient for the job as they either change the form layout, send all records or use Snapshot - which entails going to the corresponding folder\file.
Can anyone help me please?

I have addresses set up in excel 2000. I have no trouble using these to make mailing labels with Mail Merge in Word 2000, but I am having trouble composing a form letter and using these same addresses. I have tried the help feature in Word, but I must still be doing something wrong. Any advice?

Answer:Mail merge and form letters

Do the same thing you are doing to do the mail merge. Once you select the data source (your excel sheet) you can insert the fields into your document where you want them. Be sure you set up your spreadsheets first row as a label for the column beneath.

For those web devs out there.....

I've been alerted to a problem by a client whose website I created that some people can't use her email link on her website. Some 'computer expert' she hired claims that she should use form mail because visitors that do not have a default email program will not be able to send her email.

So I had a relative try it using her Verizon/Yahoo account and her email program opened up, ready for her to compose.....she doesn't use Outlook or Express....

Anyone ever heard of this? Seems to me that they may have one person, probably a relative, who wants to email them through the website and can't figure out how to use their own computer....

I normally use Outlook Express 6 but recently I installed Outlook to help someone troubleshoot a problem. It's still on my system but I do not use it.

Now whenever I send a message I get a pop up telling me that some people don't want to recieve HTML mail. Then it asks me how I want to send it; HTML or Plain Text.

I get this annoying pop up everytime I send mail and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I tried uninstalling Outlook but it seems I can't get rid of it unless I uninstall the whole office suite.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Answer:HTML Mail vs Plain text

Seems allowing HTML in Outlook, Outlook Express and Netscape E-mail clients can be exploited quite easily by Spammers or anyone who wishes to gather information such as Valid Address, Date and Time of opening E-mail, IP address at time of opening and other information normally contained in header info of E-mails.
This also begs the question if other code could be embedded into into an E-mail without our knowledge!

Ran into a website that graphically showed the vunerablility we face if someone wants to be tricky.

This is basically how it works.
Sendor of E-Mail Embeds Img Src code for object via code and directs source back to thier server. This object could be as small as 1 pixel x 1 pixel and also transparent so you do not know it is happening. When request for object is received at sending server information of request, IP address, E-Mail Address, Time and date stamp user agent info, Client, OS and versions all can be gathered.

This is bad enough but it will also happen if crafted message is forwarded on to anyone else!

Seems the more creative one gets with their communications the more vunerable one becomes to misuse!

Here is the site that explains the problem further and has a working model of it to show the vunerability!

Many thanks to Jim Mackraz for providing us with this heads up!

You can't change incoming email because you didn't create it. The original author must create their email in HTML so you can view it in HTML. If they use plain text, you get plain text.

When you reply, you can change your reply content to HTML and the recipient will get it in HTML unless they have HTML disabled.

When I went to check my e-mail this A.M. I found something very weird. I've been a member of for over a year now and have never had any problems opening or viewing their mail. I recently downloaded Spybot S&D and I'm wondering if anything that was fixed may have affected how I can read my e-mail. I'd be asking this question on their forum, but they won't let me. I don't have a clue, so please don't ask.
Info: windows 98 se
Browsers IE and AOL (on IE now)
error message or what it said: If this message appears scrambled you may not be able to rad html e-mail direct your browser to http:www.//classmates/go/e/545856641/CC053104/CM580 to change to text only mail.
I didn't follow those instructions. I closed it and kept it "as new".
Any ideas?

Answer:Why cant I read my HTML e-mail any longer

It's entirely possible that spybot removed something required for your web-based email, but switching to the text based email should fix the issue.
