Please help with howto advice.

What is the correct ACTION command for an email form hosted on so as to get emails from my own form.

Where do these forms have to be stored.

Thank you for your help.

Cgiemail or formmail May 26, 2005

Hi Salizites

First question - are you hosted on
If yes, you have to set up a form using "Cgiemail".
i'm not going to tell you that it's the easiest thing to do...
but I've succeeded so you should be able to do it too.

There is an explanation about the way it works here

If you're not on hosting, some other sps provide something called 'formmail' which is much easier to use but anybody can find your real email address in the source code, so I wouldn't recommend it. Cgiemail works on the principle of a hidden txt file including your real data.

By the way, I would advise you to edit your posting, and delete your email address above (spam robots are always on the loose..)
