We advertise our site in print magazines and online magazines, offering free samples.  Recently our form has been pickup up by the Free Coupon websites.  

When we get a request originating from one of these sites, the information that we get is
"no referring link"

Is there a way to get that information and redirect these requests so we can handle them differently.

We are trying to turn a problem into an opportunity.

THANKS

I presume you would set up an email rule on your email client to forward these messages where you want them.  or are you trying to do something more specific?

Oh yes, im sure thats possible.  I use asp to do similar things but I am pretty clueless with asp on the whole.  I presume you can stick in an "IF" statement pointing to the heading that includes the "no referring link" information and "if true" forward to your next form.  Sorry I cant be of more help but im sure a google for example code will help you
