Form Help

P: n/a
Hello,
I have a contact form at the bottom of my html page.
name:

phone:

email address:
as well as check boxes etc.

I know that I need a php mail script and I have downloaded some.
However, I need to know how to create or edit the php file so that it
will send everything in my custom form to me.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

usually you download a script only to find its simple because its
insecure and allows people to send to whomever, even if you edit it. I
would recommend you download a class like phpmailer and take a look at
examples of sending using that. It aint hard but do ask for advice
before you take it live or you will likely become the latest victim of
the DIYASAP mentality that plagues php.

You could download the www.outerlimitsfan.co.uk website and do a
cut-n-paste of the 2 contact pages .
