Hi there
I am running windows server 2003.  For our email I am running IPSwitch 7.15 program.  I have created an html form which I want the senders to send through emails, I would like them to send this form through the CGI-BIN directory.  I am NOT using the IIS services for handling mail as its already been handled by IPSwitch...................
How can I make either IIS (Version6.00) or IPSwitch to handle this form......help

THanks

I assume you are using IMail?

If so, don't forget this is just a mailserver, it does not create HTML forms for you to send email through.
Your mail is send through the mail server, but thats it, for the html form your talking about you would need to work with either FrontPage extensions (yuk) or some other language that allows you to send mail through a form. You could do it with plain HTML and mailto: in the form, but that is clunky and not very user friendly.

If you insist on using the cgi-bin, you will need to find a cgi script somewhere, do a search in google for "cgi-script to send email" maybe there are some free ones out there? Otherwise I have no advice to give as I do not know how to write cgi scripts.
