Hi there aioudine

Thanks for your answer, how exactly would I submit form data to a CGI script on a server using SSL (do I just use "...ACTION="https://www.somthing..." instead of "http" or is it more complex)?

Cheers.

I have accepted your answer, but EE is going a bit crazy at the moment (it took me 10 minuets to get through to grade your answer)
