Hi
I wanted to ask: if my free hosting is using a sendmail program,
can i use another sendmail program so that i use the cgi directory?

can i install my own sendmail program, and allow scripts in my cgi to be sent via a web form (mainly to send emails).

do you know if there is a freely distrbuted sendmail program?

Thanks for your help

Since you are hosting your web pages on a service privoders system, you would need to check with them about their policy to allow external programs to be installed on their system.

Typically these service provides do not allow users to install external programs on their system, due to security concerns. Also given that the service you are using is free kindof makes it even more risky for them.


Additionally you could post your Question to the Hot URL's forum at

Hope that helps.

treyjeff , my host's problem is that it limits the email sent frommy site by 200 mails (to prevent spam)  i think this is so conservative approch from them!

Will, i am not Yahoo! , i wil not recive multi thousands of visitors per day.... but after all , being limited by 200 mails only... is a bit scary.

any suggestions.
