Can't get e-mail form to send to the right place

Hi,

I am starting a web design business. I'm hosting with Yahoo, and the only way currently for me to send any e-mail is if I put this at the top of my HTML that makes the form:

<form method=post action="http://us.2.p2.webhosting.yahoo.com/forms?login=weikelbob">      

and this sends me all e-mail to me no matter whose web page the form is on.

I talked to Yahoo and they said that I could make the forms send their information to wherever I want using HTML.

How do I do this?

Yes, that's what I thought:
Note: All email form results go to your alternate email address in your account information.

Which hosting plan do you use - perhaps an upgrade to another package "may" help. (Or another hosting company...)

Hi Bob,

If that is the case, then Yahoo must support some type of hidden field for their form script, along the lines of:

<input type="hidden" name="email-redirect" value="abc@xyz.com">

However - they would need to tell you what exactly that is. I'm suprised that they did not include this information in their reply to you, I'll see if I can find it for you...

Thanks,
Sean

Also - you may find that the form will "only" go to whatever alternate email address you specified when you set up the account, they may not support this at all...

Yah, that's what I'm thinking.

Thank you Sean, I'll take it from here.

Sean,

I talked to Yahoo. They said that if I upgrade, then they will support PHP and I can use it to send my forms. I'm using FP 2003.

Do you know how it can be done with PHP?

seanpowellCommented:
Well, an easier way would be to let FrontPage do this, as you can handle it without code.

Do they support FP2003?

weikelbobAuthor Commented:
I know they handle frontpage extensions, do they need to also support FP 2003?

seanpowellCommented:
No, only if you were using advanced functions. 2000 or 2002 extensions should be fine.

Note that you won't be using any of their interfaces or FTP to manage your content - it will "all" be done through FP, which should not be a problem at all.

Let me know...
Sean
