I do.... heh gizmo hasn't eaten his newbie snack today.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do here. Are you trying to fill a text block or have it create a text page? and mostlikely you will need a server side language of some sort. i.e... PHP perl, python ect ect....

My PHP mail form is below this topic.

Your basic HTML form lets say it is saved as form.html

Code:
  
<html>
<head>
<title>Form</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

<FORM ACTION="test.php" METHOD="POST">Your Freinds name



<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="name" SIZE="20" MAXLENGTH="30">


Your Name



<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="freind" SIZE="20" MAXLENGTH="30">



Their e-mail address


Your message about this site<
br>

<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="message" SIZE="50" MAXLENGTH="90">



<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Send it!">
</FORM>
</body>
</html>
Now notice in the form action it says test.php Well that calls for a seperate page to process the info

Code:
 
<?php
mail ("$email", "$name... $freind wants you to check this site", 
"$message !n http://rrfn.promodtecnologies.com !");?>  
And the above code is what you would find on that page. The file is save as test.php and processes the variables from the form.

This one sends and e-mail out.

it uses the
mail () function
in PHP **this requires sendmail to be installed**

All the $words you see are the variables from the HTML form.

$email", is who this will be sent to

"$name, The persons name who will recive it

$freind The name of who sent it

wants you to check this site this will apear in the subject line

And there is more, I myself am still learning PHP. but you can add a reply to function in the header with will give the correct e-mail addy to reply to.
