On my formmail.cgi script, I can assign a redirect page like this:

<input type=hidden name="redirect" value="http://www.mydomain.com/page.htm">

Because my form is a pop up window to the user, what can I put in the redirect parameter to close the window when it submits?

You can't really put anything in the redirect param, but on the page you end up on you can add in

<script type="text/javascript"> window.close(); </script>

and that will close the window. However it will probably prompt the user if they want to or not becuase of security features put in place to keep a site from closing the window on load.
