Mail form in go daddy

Can anyone help me with how to make an e-mail form work in go-daddy? I currently have fields created on the page and they allow me to inpu the text.  When I submitt the form it does get e-mailed where it is supposed to go but the data I entered does not show up in the e-mail, just the field names.  Can someone help?

I have tried to host on go daddy and the form works perfect with a couple minor imperfections to fix your code but in your form you do need to tell it where to send it...

<form action="gdform.asp" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="recipients" value="YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Form Submission">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="thankyou.html">
</form>

now it knows where to send the email. works great!


Also instead of using GOdaddy's mail try using below...

Hi Bugs,

It does work good.  Is there a way to have it show the fields in the e-mail so they are not sorted in alphabetical order? ie (address is at the top)

Thanks,

Jeff
