    Hi,

    formmail.pl is actually a Perl app, not PHP.

    But this should help you...

    Hi,

    What are you trying to do exactly? I'm not quite sure what you mean.

    Are you wanting to use this script to send an email from filling in the form to a Mail Enable server?

    I was trying to create a contact form in which a visitor may fill out, upon clicking the "send" button, that message would be sent to an email address specified in the email script.

    On the Linux platform I use formMail.pl to accomplish this.

    I need a script that will work on the Windows platform.

    I was told from my host...

    "...there is no way to send email through a webform on our plesk windows servers, at all."

    I have no idea what I can use at this point. Does anybody out there have some ideas?

    There has to be something. If I cannot create a basic contact form on the Windows platform, then there is NO way I can keep my site hosted there.

    Hi,

    It is possible. Although I do not personally use Windows servers any longer myself.

    As part of the package are you provided with mail? Assuming this you would be able to use a script to send an email via the SMTP server you are given.

    Hi,

    From memory, yes.

    Assuming your mail server does not require a heafty, complex auth setup then the script should be easy.

    I'll have a look around at scripts for you.

    EDIT: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/asp/smtpmaildelivery.aspx Try that.

    Tried a simple CDONTS test received a 500 error

    Error log reads:

    /cdontsmail.html - 443 -


    I assume that means port 443 is not open or usable?
