Should be something like:

<% If Request("femail") ="" then Response.Redirect(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")) %>

assuming they have been set
referrer is not set when you load a url from the location bar or from bookmark

Better to use it in this way


<%
If Request("femail") = "" Then
   If Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER") <> "" Then
     Response.Redirect(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER"))
   Else
     Response.Write "Invalid access."
  End if
End if
%>

He could also user Server.Transfer.

It is actually safer.

One of my least favorites, an option nonetheless, is to use

<a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">GO BACK</a>
