I want that people should be able to list items at my site and people can make offers for them. Now if someone removes his item then an E-mail should get sent out to all those who made and offer saying  that the Item they made an offer on has been removed. I'd appreciate any help you guys can offer !!!
Thanks

WiddleAvi,

This is actually very easy to do.   Are you using asp?  If you
are, then there are some good, free email packages available
to send email automatically from your site.  I like jmail the best.
It's available from dimec.  But you can see a comparison of
the available asp email components at:

If you are just using straight html, you'll need to use some
cgi scripts.

hth,

p.s. http://macrealm.com/cgi/
has some perl/cgi scripts that send mail from
straight html pages.

I am having problems installing Jmail. I tried posting the sample code and changing it to suit my server and E-mail etc. but I get an error. How do I set it up on my web server ??

WiddleAvi,

I haven't actually had to do that myself.  Our sysadmin in the past
has done it.   But I think it's only a matter of registering the dll and then
moving a copy of jmail to the server root.  Still, jmail has a pretty
responsive tech support.  Try mailing them with your question.
Our sysadmin is out of town this week, or I'd just ask him.  at any
rate, there is good information at dimec.net on how to do it.

good luck,
Dena
