I can't get my form to deliver the information...and I don't know where I am going wrong.
in the first  frame in my movie, here's the action i loaded on it.

stop();

var gatherForm:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
function sendForm() {
      gatherForm.email_to = "ditch@iamditch.com";
      getherForm.visitor_message = Form.message.text;
      gatherForm.visitor_name = Form.Name.text;
      gatherForm.visitor_email = Form.Email.text;
      
      gatherForm.send("gdform.cgi", "POST");
}


on the submit button here's the action I loaded on it.

on (release) {
      gatherform.loadVars("gdform.cgi", "POST");
}
on (release) {
      nextFrame();
}

in a gdform.cgi file, here's the code i copied and uploaded.
 
<?
$sendTo = "my email address.com";
$subject = "webpage message";
$headers = "From: " . $_POST["firstName"] ." ". $_POST["lastname"] . "<" . $_POST["email"] .">\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $_POST["email"] . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Return-path: " . $_POST["email"];
$message = $_POST["message"];
mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);
 
?>

What do you exactly mean by 'I can't get my form to deliver the information'???  Do you at least get a blank email or partial information in it or you don't even get any email???

A couple of fixes I can see as is...

See this code block???
---
on (release) {
      gatherform.loadVars("gdform.cgi", "POST");
}
on (release) {
      nextFrame();
}
---

Replace it with this...
---
on (release) {
      sendForm();
}
---

And, fix your PHP script like this and see if it works...
-----
<?
$sendTo = "my email address.com";
$subject = "webpage message";
$headers = "From: " . $_POST["visitor_name"] . "<" . $_POST["visitor_email"] .">\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $_POST["visitor_email"] . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Return-path: " . $_POST["visitor_email"];
$message = $_POST["visitor_message"];
mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);
?>

Thank you for your help. I'm sorry I wasn't very clear on my problem. when i click send- I get nothing.
Not a blank email, nothing at all. go daddy doesn't help with script all they tell me is to save my uploaded file in my cgi directory. does that mean I should save the code as a .cgi file?
