VB Script Question

I have a webpage that has a form on it with a few fields in the form.  I want to be able to click on a button and have the information in the form emailed to a certain email address.

So I would like to know how to do this using VB Script if it's possible.

Check out DundasMailer which is a free component to do this;


And also check out w3 JMail Free which we use at work;

Thanks for the information.  But isn't there a simple way to just code this using either VB Script or ASP instead of having to get a component?
add action="mailto:yourname@domain.com" to a <form> tag:

<form name="myForm" method="post" action="mailto:yourname@domain.com">

Thanks for the help.  I'm new to webpages.  Where do I be put the code you gave me on the form?  Do I need to create a function?

And how does it take all of the information from the form?
I would highly suggest getting a component. Specifically I would go with w3 JMail. Here is an example of implementation;

      Set JMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.SMTPMail")
      JMail.Silent = False
      JMail.Logging = True
      JMail.ServerAddress = ""
      JMail.Sender = pstrEmailAddress 'Variable containing sender email address.
      JMail.AddRecipient "email@email.com" 'Your email address.
      JMail.Subject = pstrSubject 'Variable containing subject for email.
      JMail.ContentType = "text/html"
      JMail.Body = pstrBody 'Variable containing content of email.

With all respect to YZlat, the other approach is not the best method.

"This method does not work with every browser, but does work with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla/Netscape, and the old Netscape 4.x browsers, which are used by 95% or more of users at the time of this writing. The biggest disadvantage: as of this writing, Microsoft Internet Explorer will display a warning to the user, pointing out that submitting a form by email will disclose their email address to the recipient, and asking if they really want to do that." - boutell.com

Jagata, when you simply want to e-mail the forn's results that method works just fine. It seems like ecohouse does not want to composen an e-mail but simply e-mail the results of the form
besides, ecohouse is using html and vbscript, not asp.
YZlat, If you want to discuss the flaws of submitting a form via email, open a question with some points for me, otherwise I couldn't care less.
