How to create a special email form
I would like a form which sends the
form fields to one email address and
at the same time generates an email
utilizing some of the same form
fields into the body of the email to a
different emailaddress. The script (if
any) would have to be compatible
with a windows server. Also is there
any way to send the generated form
created email to the people in your
guestbook. Thanks in advance

Wow. That's a lot of stuff. If you have some coding experience then you can probably do this but if you have zero programming experience then I suggest that you check out something like FrontPage 2002.

A "special" form is not really that special.It just needs some kind of smtp server and the proper script to handle the form input and the email output. You do not mention what kind of web server you are using. If it is IIS 4 or 5 then there is an SMTP server called CDONTS built in. A little ASP and VB script handles the user input and then sends it to anyone you want.

As for mailing it to everyone in your guestbook it really depends on your guestbook and your scripting skills. If the guestbook is already in a database then so much thebetter because that is what you will need.

Actual code samples would fill more room than we have here but an excellent place to start is at the following URL:
