Form Query

Hi

I have a HTML form which needs to be sent via email.

Unfortunately, due to reasons I don't have time to go in to (and you don't want to see a grown man cry), the options of PHP, ASP, JSP or Coldfusion are not open to me (I wish they were - it would make my job a lot easier!).  So bascially I'm left with just basic HTML.

Is there a way of sending an email

(A) without opening the email software like Lotus Notes, Outlook (a long shot I know), or
(B) if these do have to open up - is there a foolproof safe way of doing this?  I've had a play around with sending forms and I'm getting different results on different computers.

Thanks in advance

No - you absolutely need to use some sort of server-side processing for this. There is no way to handle this just with html.

Hi,

If you do not have any access to any scripting languages, then the answer is no.  You need either PHP, ASP, CGI, etc...

I'm okay with your rec - but the question (both A and B) was answered correctly. (Just happens to be No in this case...)

I live in Maui, Hawaii.  I think there are basically five or six clocks on the entire island.  I'm fairly certain the number of calendars is smaller :)  I just work when stuff needs to be done.  I doubt 50 percent of the people here (about 75 percent of non-tourists) have a clue what day of the week it is :)

>>zenlion420 is been working hard lately:)

Going through all of the DW Qs, adilkhan, you're in about 75-80 percent of them :)  I think I'm about caught up with this TA, and I'm glad to see all of you guys getting something for your time.  I've certainly leaned some stuff in the process too, thanks to you and others.

Uhmmm - I'm just checking my sources on that - apparently no one has been able to find "any" clocks on the island. (Except for the ones built into the side of a mountain and covered with vines) so you may be looking at a genuine clock knock off.

Thanks for all your hard work - it's appreciated.
