Hi, i am looking to put a form on a website which when submit is pressed it sends the message to an e-mail address. I know how to create a form on dreamweaver but dont know how to get it to send to my e-mail address.

I will not be able to reply for a couple of hours but thanks in advance!

In the opening Form Tag you would put the following parameters:-

<form action="mailto:insert the email address here" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="insert a name here" id="insert an ID here">

Be careful. This is not a very secure way of sending data. If you are collecting data from potential customers then you have a legal responsibility to protect that data. It is OK to collect data like names or email addresses this way but it is not OK to collect sensitive data.

Hi Aidan,

click here for a similar thread from me. There's a link in there that gives an invaluable bit of code from Matt45 that will prevent your form being used for spam.
