I created an HTML form and the info comes to me via e-mail and works great. I want the information that comes to me in e-mail to also go to the e-mail of the person who submitted the form. How can I do this? I only know how to get the information to myself via Submit, not also to the sender. Thanks.

maybe you could have an automatic response in your email forwarding the form you receive back to the sender?

At the top of the form page it says:

<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="mailto:myname@email.com" ENCTYPE="text/plain"><BR>
<table border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2>

At the bottom of the form page it says:

<INPUT type=submit value=Send>
<INPUT type=reset value="Clear">


It's just an html page.

Does this help?

Oops... sorry. We are hosted by Interland... it's paid. :tazz: The features are all available I am quite sure.... it's just my lack of knowledge that is the issue I think. ;)

Then consider yourself able to do a ton more than you would using that script :tazz:

You can set up a whole automatic system where depending on the type of contact form, they'll get an auto e-mail message from you saying you will be with them shortly.

There are many other things you can do with a php form but you were saying you want the visitor to get an e-mail also.

If you want one of these forms browse the many free ones here and I can help you if you get stumped setting one up.

Thanks. I went to the page, but to be honest, I don't know how to use it. If you know of a code example that shows how to send information to the person asking and back to the e-mail of the sender, I'd be so happy. If I see it and then use it, I get it. :tazz:

ok, download this, then follow the installation instructions in the installation text file.

I sent you a pm with an example of this form.

If you are paid hosted you must have php and it would be rather simple to solve your issue with form builder which you can add to your site without any problems. The advantage of this tool is that you don't need to do any coding.

Your best bet is to remove the method email and change it to post then have a .php script on the server that will do the email sending.

You can then send a mail to yourself anf to whoever else you like at the same time.

I dont think its possible ( or at least easy ) to do it with JS or HTML alone.

A serverside language like PHP will help a lot.

If your server supports PHP check out tizag.com and look at their php tutorials.
They are easy to follow ( i used them ) and help a lot.

Good luck
