Answered: Sending form via Email
I wrote a little form with some textfield, some radiofields and a fileuploadfield.
What I want the form to do is to send an email with what the user filled the form with.
The first thing I tried was using "mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org" as the url of the form. I know this may not be the appropriate way, but for what i need this for it should really be enough i guess.
But this just opens me an empty mail, Firebug shows nothing ... so I guess in addition to being not the appropriate way, it just doesn't work the way I thought.
So my question is: Is there any way to simply send the form via email or do I have to write a server component to do so? Or may I use PHP? If so, can anyone tell me, where I can find how to do it in PHP, because I haven't done anything with PHP yet ...
Thanks in advance and greetz
You will need some server side script (there are many email scripts for PHP) to do everything like file upload and such.
