FormMail is a CGI to e-mail gateway. It uses the results of the HTML form you create to allow visitors to send you information.

A sample snippet of HTML to use FormMail:

<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/cgi-sys/FormMail.pl">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="recipient" VALUE="your.e-mail@yourdomain.com">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="subject" VALUE="Subject of your E-Mail Form">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="redirect" VALUE="http://yourdomain.com/success-page.html">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="env_report" VALUE="REMOTE_ADDR">

Your name: <INPUT TYPE=text NAME="realname"><BR>

Your e-mail address: <INPUT TYPE=text NAME="email"><BR>

Your message:
<textarea name="message" rows=5 cols=35></textarea>

<INPUT TYPE="submit" value="Send E-Mail">
</FORM>

</BODY>
</HTML>
You'll need to modify the areas in red to reflect the appropriate values for your domain name / web site.

The form example above will send the results to "your.e-mail@yourdomain.com", with a subject of "Subject of your E-Mail Form", and will redirect the user to "http://yourdomain.com/success-page.html" after they submit the form. FormMail.pl will also include the sender's IP address (REMOTE_ADDR) in the e-mail.

To prevent abuse by spammers, the "recipient" field will ONLY allow a destination address at the domain you have hosted with us.

For advanced users, the complete list of FormMail.pl options can be found at:
