Form to e-mail in Frontpage 2002

I've generated an html page in Frontpage 2002 -  I'm having trouble getting the form to e-mail to work.  I get the following error when I click the send button:
Cannot run the FrontPage Server Extensions' Smart HTML interpreter on this non-HTML page:

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Also, I'm fairly new to Frontpage so be gentle!!!

Have you configured the FrontPage Server Extensions to deliver the e-mail to an e-mail transport (SMTP mail server)?
is your page named .asp?  It has to be an html page.  I would use CDONTS for email.  Alot more functionality and it doesn't depend on the crappy frontpage extensions.

From the link above, it appears to be an html page:
OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

Learn the top ten threats that are present in modern web-application development and how to protect your business from them.

I didn't catch that.  Try changing the page to htm instead of html

By the way it should work fine if you remove the email address from the form properties.  Naturally this will not send it to your email address.

I will post an example of cdonts on my site for you to try.

Here is a link that has the code to create two pages.  One to process the email and one with the form.  It is very simple.

I'm going to check that out for me too. Thanks in advance! I'm sick of FP forms not working!!
I have to agree. As much as I love FrontPage, I have slowly replaced all my email forms with CDONTS. Here is another tutorial:

FrontPage forms DO work. They are a fabulous way to accomplish many tasks, but they are not always as reliable as we might like. In your case, the form has been damaged. You can recreate it and it will likely work OR you can use the CDONTS method to do just about anything you want.

Tks for all the info.  I finally decided that Frontpage isn't worth messing with.  I couldn't get the form to work the way I wanted so I got with a friend of mine who helped me setup a php script on his site and it's working fine.

Points go to jdfulton because he was the most helpful.

Thanks to all of you who posted and a Merry Christmas to all!!!!
Thanks jeffmsas.  If you need any examples or help let me know.

Happy Holidays to all
