non-ASP speaker with gdform.asp problems

P: n/a
I have a website hosted on GoDaddy.com.

To process forms, GoDaddy requires users to use their gdform script.

(My copy of) The script is here:
http://www.joeswelding.biz/gdform.asp

I use this script to receive email messages, but the formatting of them is
horrible.

Is there any way to modify a Classic ASP script like this to send the
information in Rich Text or with HTML formatting?

I can modify the script, but I have no way of modifying GoDaddy's program
that uses this script.

Does anyone have any experience using GoDaddy? If I want to improve the look
of the emails I receive, must I come up with my own script to process my
mail form?

You are NOT required to use GDFORM on GoDaddy. You just have to know
something about ASP programming and how to use CDONTS.

Here is the code I use to process a contact form and send me an email:

<%@ Language="VBSCRIPT" %>
<%

If Request.ServerVariables("REQUEST_METHOD") = "POST" Then

Dim objMail
Set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

objMail.From = Request.Form("email")
objMail.Subject = "Contact Form"
objMail.To = "me@mymail.here"
objMail.Body = "Name: " & Request.Form("name") & vbcrlf & "Email: " &
Request.Form("email") & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & Request.Form("comments")
objMail.Send

set objMail = nothing

End If

%>

Dave,

That's a lot of good info!

Not being an ASP guy, and since Classic ASP info difficult to find without
being swamped by Microsoft's ASP.NET, could you point me in the direction of
a good site on how to use CDONTS in Classic ASP?

I've heard of both CDOS and CDONTS, and I looked them up once, but I had no
idea what they were trying to tell me that these were for. Is there a simple
(layman) description of what these do?

I get most of my information from sites like ASPIN.COM or
http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/

I scour the older articles which predate ASP.NET.

Other than that, I just have dozens of old books on classic ASP
programming that I refer to occasionally.

Never could bring myself to start down the .NET road...

Thanks, Mr. Paal.
