Please help with cgiemail





photographerguy
Hello,

I basically have no idea what I am doing. On a different host I got it to work by:

1. Thay already had cgiemail installed in my cgi-bin
2. I created a .txt file in my root directory setting up the email it goes to and the name of the form fields. This file was named contactform.txt
3. I created a form on one of my pages and told the submit button to
"http://www.myhostname.com/cgi-bin/cgiemail/contactform.txt" when hit.
4. I got it to work after many people helped me, I'm new at this.

Since there is no cgiemail in my cgi-bin, I assume it must be installed. I googled cgiemail and read a few articles. They are over my head, I did try, so I'm not being totally lazy.

Is it easy to install? How? What kind of OS does our server have? Any tips/information/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

No ideas?

All I want is to get input from a form to my email.
It doesn't have to be cgiemail (it is the only one I've ever used)
If there is another easy way, I would appreciate any advice/tips.

Thank you.

I had a good one that worked before the server crashed. once they fix the problem I am having with my site and the nameservers, I will get the script running again and then i can give it to you and explain how to get it running.

Both of the beginner tutorials are too complicated for me. Is there something more basic than this, I don't have any experience with this type of stuff. Thanks for the link.
