Submitted Form Options

P: 1
Ok, so I have this form on my website for a "guild application" which just has several radio and check boxes, a few text entry fields and a couple of drop down menus. Anyway, on the bottom, there is a "Submit" button which I have setup in HTML as:

<FORM action="mailto:me@yahoo.com" method=post >

But the problem is that the client who is submitting the information needs to have SMTP or Outlook/whatever installed and working for me to get the file. How can I HTML code it to save a file (either a) a new file each submission, or b) the same file appended/updated with new information, while keeping the old), on my server (doing this from a home PC) as a .txt or other text viewable file?

You want to save a text file of the message that is sent to you? You will need server side scripting to do that.

I have done this as Aric suggests using asp (vbscript). it is fairly easy to set up. I would re-post this question in ASP forum.
