automatic real time adjustments and automatic email confirmations

I am looking for any information to find software that has the capability of making automatic real time adjustments and automatic email confirmations for an auction web site.  I want to develop an auction web site using WYSIWYG because I do not understand HTML, but I need the program to automatically make changes to the bid price when people bid on items and automatically send that person an email confirmation.  Any info if front page or any software can do this and where to find it will be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Consider using MS Frontpage and their Discussion Group feature.  It would allow your bidders to post their information immediately and have it displayed immediately.

It's not very fancy, but for someone getting started it might be just what you are looking for.

Good Luck,
Steve Duell
