Searching for serverbased contact form

Hi everybody!
I'm working on a website and would like to add a contact form. However, I don't want to have an email-address in my documents code. (So, no mailto:name@domain.com!) I've heard, that some services offer server based scripts, which are more secure in those terms - does anyone know such a service? I'd rather not write the code myself. (Nor am I asking for anyone here to write it for me!)
Oh, and I want this script to work on as many different browsers as possible - just in case, there's a difference (although, as it should be server based, I guess that shouldn't be a problem).

Greetings,
Nepomuk

You should be able to do this curtisy of a server-side language (PHP). There are plenty of things for hosting e-mail services just google it and you should find what you need.

Thanks, Death

If I understand it correctly, with PHP the server creates a HTML document, which is sent to the browser. Wouldn't this HTML document then contain the email address?

A server side language would process the form values according to the way it is written. Then the values would be sent via email in the background. All the while hiding the email address from the user.

OK, in that case I'll have a look at PHP solutions, I guess. Thanks a lot!

hi ...

a google-search for 'free form mailer' will give you some hits. those services might be implemented in any way ... but often they require some advertising for the proviver on your page. when you don't want the advertisments or need unlimited attachment-sizes then i guess you have to pay a fee for the service.

kind regards
