I have a web site with Verio and they support FrontPage. The problem is that I wish to receive E-mails from people who visit the site.

I followed the instructions as set out in the book I am using to set up a Form Page with the form properties that it should be sent to my e-mail address www.gibreelmahmood@hotmail.com However the message never gets there, despite the fact a message confirmation message appears.

Could anyone out there tell me if I am over looking something or need to check something before it will work.

Regards

Gibreel E-mail: gibreelmahmood@hotmail.com

Why is the www infront of you e-mail address. In FP 2000: highlight the text or picture, right click on it, click on hyperlink, then click on the small envolope, it prompt with enter e-mail address enter gibreelmahmood@hotmail.com
 
That is if your using FP2k.

agreed,

Your problem is the format of the email address.  remove the 'www' and it should work.

Hello Gibreel,
if the corrected email address won´t solve your problem: I had some accounts with verio a while ago and while they had most frontpage extentions they had not the send-form-as-email extention.
But instead they had set up a cgi for that. Contact your customer support dept. for details and in case the corrrect action call for your form.

The problem is the "www" not needed. Probably a mistake in inputing your code in the wizard.

Change your hyperlink to begin with

mailto:

instead of

www.

Example:
mailto:gibreelmahmood@hotmail.com

Lesson
mailto:(followed by an email address) - sends an email message

http://www. - opens an Internet web page

file:/// - opens a file on YOUR computer's hard drive

http://whatever (but not www) - opens a file on your local web server
