Server Form Mail Script

The script is already stored on the system and added as an alias to apache. This means that it is accessible from http://www.yourdomain.ext/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi (watch out for those caps) (Replace yourdomain.ext with your domain name and proper extension .com, .net, etc.)

Beyond this point, all you need to do is write a form that submits the information to the URL above.

Here is a sample Form. Just remember to edit the (values) to your own.

<form method=”POST” action=”http://(your_domain.com)/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi”>
<p> <input type=”hidden” name=”recipient” size=”20″ value=”(your_email_address)”></p>
<p><u>Return-Email: <input type=”text” name=”email” size=”20″></u></p>
<p><u>Subject: <input type=”text” name=”subject” size=”20″></u></p>
<p><u>Real Name: <input type=”text” name=”realname” size=”20″></u></p>
<p><textarea rows=”9″ name=”message” cols=”94″></textarea></p>
<p><input type=”submit” value=”Submit”><input type=”reset” value=”Reset” name=”B2″></p>
</form>
