    Need help with html coding for auto email notify upon submit from landing pg

    I am wondering if someone can point me to a solution for being automatically email notified anytime a viewer submits from a landing page. The site is hosted by 1and1 and they are telling me that their MySQL servers wont support any notification when data is populated into the database. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated....Mark

    A generally accepted approach is to write a script to check for the new data you're looking for in the database, then have the script send an email when it finds new data. Then, you will have to add this script as a cron task that will run at specified time intervals (note--not all hosts support this).

    The MySQL engine by itself doesn't have the ability to send email.
