Hello all,

I need to send an email and include a couple of checkboxes on it, POST form and with a SUBMIT button, and then the button is pressed, redirect the users to www.mywebsite.com/getanswers.aspx and retrieve the values of the checkboxes.

Is this possible? If so, will this work in all email clients?

Thanks!

Paula

create email body as html

put something like this in body

<form name=".." action="http://www.mywebsite.com/getanswers.aspx" method=post>
chk1 : <input name=chk1><br>
chk2 : <input name=chk1><br>
<input type=submit value="Submit">
</form>

and send to yourself and see if it works... Most email clients will not run javascript, but this is pure html

This is what it shows instead of the checkboxes and the button:

[ ] Selection A
[ ] Selection B
[ ] Selection C
[Submit]

Any workaround?

Thanks!
