HELP with processing online forms on my site

  1. Check out php.net and search for "mail". You'll find all sorts of nifty stuff. There's a fair amount of configuring depending on your tastes so I can't give a clear cut answer. But there is a function called mail() that you can use. Check php.net for the details...

    Ugh! I edited your post instead of quoting it! Ack! My bad!

    Well, the question was: "How do I send email from PHP?"

    Sorry Bigfoot... This just means its time for me to step away from the computer...

    [I managed to hit the quote button this time!]

    I've got a renegade W2k Pro box at work with a pile of non-Microsoft web technology including PHP & Apache. The mail() function works just fine under W2k. I've got a couple light duty spam apps built off of mail(). I've heard some folks have had reliability problems with mail() and have written socket connections to their mail server. I haven't had a need to send more than 200 emails at a time and mail() hasn't caused me problems.
