I can set up forms fine and have hooked them up to send info to my email, my problem is, I notice alot of the users don't have there outlook set up so they get an error sending the email. So I want to fix this so that I send the form info from host to my email without using there email outlook to send it. This way all users of my form won't get a error when there outlook isn't set up to send info. Any ideas to how to set up the form to send internally?


Thanks,
GD13

Is there another way besides coding it into the page, l'm not good with PHP so have no idea how to code this. I was hoping for someone to tell me there is another option in bluevoda form that allows you to send internal and not threw users email.

If coding is the only way to fix this problem, is there a easy to understand method to writing a page for a form, I need to make lots and each one will have different info and layout. From the 2 links you gave, I looked at them and they didn't make much sence. =[

I'm sorry I can't make it easier for you.
Unfortunately we did not invent the HTML language or PHP, so we have no control over how it works. We can only use the tools which we have available.

The default email (mailto:) option only works if the user's PC configuration is correct. If the user has installed firefox or a thirdparty email client it will probably fail.
There is no way to detect if this is the case, so the only fallback is using a server sided PHP script which uses the VodaHost mail server instead of the local email client.

Or You can do this , this is a script that will take the error away. I will script it for you but i need your voda host e-mail account and you site address

the e-mails will be sent to your vodahost account so if you don't have one you will need to creat one
