    Trying to configure my form mail through my host (fourbucks.net). Anyone out in OT land use this host? I am looking for a good tutorial on how to set this up. I have tried to use their tutorial and I am not having too much luck.

    Thanks!

    Oh, it isn't the ACTUAL form mail, I believe it is a clone. "Clone Mail" or something like that. If there is a better method to get information a user inputs into a form...sent to me by e-mail...I would be eager to hear about it. As you can tell, this isn't my area of expertise.

    WHY do you want it in email. And WHAT are they sending you.

    For HIPPA, CC processor agreements, BBB, common-sense, etc you generally do NOT want to email sensitive info.


    Generally, when a cust really really really wants an email, I set everything up on a SSL site that simply stores into a mysql db. Then I email a generic "please check sandbox" email with a link to the site. They have to authenticate thru the ssl site and can do what they need to do in the sandbox and re-assign the order as neccessary.

    Registration information. Sending me their contact info, etc. I don't want them to get the e-mail...I want to get the e-mail with their info.

    I do not in any way recommend that. The "sandbox" method is much better, imo. You can get an email with GENERIC information that action is required. Do not send personal info.

    Hmmm...don't know anything about that method. Something new to learn. Any pointers to tutorials or educational resources? Thanks!

    Thanks dick head. That would be helpful if I KNEW WHERE TO BEGIN. Maybe I should just search for "sandbox" and see what I come up with.

    You could be helpful and say "What you are looking for is called ______". Then I would be able to do a google search.

    I already explained that I don't know what I am doing...but trying to learn.

    might be a better idea to store the info in a database on the server, making the contact info searchable, sortable, etc. Instead of filling up your inbox. If I'm understanding your correctly
