Sending forms on a web page

By corkyo4 ·
Hi this is probably a really dum question but how do you send emails on a web site like an email form wihout using outlook express. I have a couple of forms on my webpage and when i put the links in and click submit they always load outlook express.I am hosting with brinkster at the moment and i believe they don't have mailing servers to use can anyone suggest anything. Can you please keep it simple aswell as i am not the most advanced user of html..

you can have a link to send a mail which calls another JSP/Servlet.
instead of saying mailto:xyz@xyz.com you can say
<a href="mailme.jsp">xyz@xyz.com</a>.. On click of this link it goes to your jsp page and does not open outlook Express.

No basic explanation

You would need one of scripting languages working on your server(PHP/Perl/JSP) and have rights to send email with this scripting languages.
I would recommend you to check hotscripts.com for form mail scripts. They usually come with easy to install document.
Good luck

unfortunately, the free hosting solution in brinkster does not allow mail relaying... so you're trapped with the browser launching the user's client mail method.
