5.4.3 Setting up forms to send results via email
          from Microsoft Knowlegebase

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FrontPage 98 for Windows
  • Microsoft FrontPage 97 for Windows with Bonus Pack
  • Microsoft FrontPage for Windows, versions 1.0, 1.1
  • Microsoft FrontPage for the Power Macintosh, version 1.0

SUMMARY

This article describes how to set up a FrontPage form to submit form results as an e-mail attachment rather than saving the results in a file. Note that some browsers may not support the mailto Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

NOTES:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer, versions 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 do not support the inclusion of form output to a mailto URL.
  • Posting results by e-mail will work only if the client has a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) compliant e-mail system.

MORE INFORMATION
FrontPage 98
To set up a form to submit results as an e-mail attachment, follow these steps:
  1. In FrontPage Editor, create a form.
  2. Right-click any object in the form, and then click Form Properties on the menu that appears. The form will be outlined by a dashed box.
  3. In the Email Address box, type the e-mail address of the recipient.
  4. Click OK.

NOTE: If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not configured to send a form in e-mail format, the following message will appear:

     The FrontPage Server Extensions have not been configured to
     send e-mail. Please direct your system administrator or
     Internet Service Provider to follow the instructions at
     'Setting Up Your E-mail Transport' in the \SERK\enu\admin.htm
     file on the FrontPage CD-ROM.
     Would you like to remove the e-mail recipient?

In this case, click Yes and contact the server administrator for help setting up the extensions to send e-mail.

All other versions of FrontPage

To set up a form to submit results as an e-mail attachment, follow these steps:

  1. In FrontPage Editor, create a form.
  2. Right-click any object in the form, and then click Properties on the menu that appears. The form will be outlined by a dashed box.
  3. Click Form.
  4. In the Form Handler list, select Custom CGI Script and then click Settings.
  5. In the Action box, type the following, replacing everything after "mailto:" with the actual e-mail address you want to use:
      mailto:example@microsoft.com
  1. In the Method box, type or select Post, and then click OK.
  2. Click OK twice.

When your form is submitted, your e-mail program will start and open a New Message window. The form will be sent as a text attachment if the sender's e-mail system and Web browser support this type of action. If the sender's Web browser does not support the mailto URL, the sender can insert the text and manually send the message.
