Not in client-side Javascript.

I say client-side because if I answer no then someone will point out
that server side JScript or Javascript can send mail.

Yes, which is very annoying. ;-)
I know a lot of developers, but 0 who use javascript serverside.

Anybody in here who uses JS serverside? Just curious.

Sure, under ASP jscript can be more handy making functions having regex
manipulation or UTC time. [VBscript cannot find the serverside UTC-offset]

I use it also porting ready made clientside JS functions to serverside, or
just for the fun of it.

======================

However, under cscript or wscript JS is also very neat.

Actually, I should correct myself and say a simple "No" and let them say
"Server side can" so I can reply back and say "No, server side
J(ava)Script cant, it tells the mail server to send mail" :)

Evertjan is the only one I know for sure but there are surely others
that use JScript. To me, Server Side Javascript is as good as dead. If
it wasn't before AOL bought it, it surely is now.

I do for my personal site.

E-mail from server side under ASP will require a separate component; it
is not natively part of JavaScript. My ASP is Sun One which includes
an ex-Chilisoft Mail component accessible through Server.CreateObject.

I sincerely hope it lingers on a bit in ASP for amateur programmers
such as myself.

I wonder whether it is used in earnest for professional use server
side? I guess rarely, given ASP.NET, PHP, JSP, etc. I am certainly
starting to consider teaching myself PHP.

Hi,

Please go PHP.
It is relatively easy to learn, but nonetheless very powerfull.
comp.lang.php is a great group if you need any help. :-)

Thanks. That is the way I am likely to go, as that is automatically
available with my hosting company. Will check out the newsgroup.

ASP will have Server Side JScript.
Server Side Javascript was in the Netscape Server package.

They are two different animals. With MS and it's legacy trend, don't
look for JScript to disappear anytime soon.

PHP is the best way, especially since you said in another post that your
hosting company has it by default.

With PHP and Apache, you can setup a localhost server to test on without
having to upload everything.

I went PHP until I went Ruby On Rails. I wish I'd gone straight to
Rails but the PHP probably helped me pick up the Rails stuff faster.
But Rails is a lot nicer.

JScript is one of the three MS supported languages for ASP.NET. It is
quite painful compared to C# but handy for moving former client-side
code, server-side.

PHP is much nicer and richer than than JScript server-side or ASP
(vbscript) or, IMHO, ASP.NET. I haven't tried Ruby On Rails yet though
it's Python heritage is enough to make me distrustful. I'm in a
minority on this one though.
