What was originally to be a simple task, which was to insert a feedback form into my intranet, has turned into a splitting headache. Using FP98 webbot, I inserted all the necessary input, with my e-mail address to receive the feedback, yet it doesn't work. Then I read the microsoft support web page (how to submit form results to e-mail) explaining how to make the necessary changes in the Frontpg.ini file. I tried but I still get a "HTTP: 501 error - Not Supported" message in the browser. Why is this? I may not have input the correct changes in the parameter=value setting. The changes I made to this file were:
SMTPHost="my_email_address"
SMTPHost="our_MSexchange_IP_address"
SendmailCommand

Any suggestions?. Additional info: Windows 95, Personal Web Server

Does this happen when you run it on the Personal Web Server, or on your ISP's server?

Your sever must be running the FrontPage extensions to the forms to work. These extensions (for most posular servers) can be downloaded from microsoft at no charge.

I have the server extensions, and it occurs with both the PWS and through the ISP. However, now I get a different error message, which says 'Front Page error'see the FPage log file.
I did and it says: 'Cannot resolve name of SMTP host my_email_address'.;
What is the problem here? I still haven't solved this one - I need help

You don't need your_email_address...only the IP should do as Host argument.

I have now removed the e-mail address, and now I get a different error message: 'Cannot connect to SMTP host'xx.xx.xx.xx'
Is this simply because the IP address is wrong or something else?
