  • You need both to create the form itself and have some method of processing it to send an email response.

    There's an online tool for EW that can do most of this for you at http://www.ctrfx.com/form/default.aspx

    This creates the code to send the form results in ASP.Net, which means you need to use a Windows server to use it.

    My host, hypermart.net, offers a free formmail script for creating online forms that can submit to an email address.

    I used it for this customers page. You can view the source for this page to see how it works.

    Just don't fill it out and submit it to him unless you want to buy a house :)

    Check with your host for a form email script like this. They are pretty common.

  • WHICH process doesn't work?

    The CTRFX form works if your site is, as was explained, hosted on a windows server supporting asp.net, and using an .aspx page, properly following instructions to put your correct mail server and email address and authentication in.

    If you are trying the other option, using a form your host provides, you must talk with them, not us, about following their instructions to implement it.

  • And a link to a contact page made using a host's provided form wouldn't tell anyone how to do create their own form, anyway. The part of that post that was useful wasn't the link, but the point that your host may have contact form instructions and scripts you can use, and to ask them.
