Hi all,

You might be able to help. I am trying to get a form to work on my http://www.clomac.co.uk site and i think I am nearly there but it still isnt bloody working. Heres what Ive done so far.



Created a cgi-bin folder in my clomac web directory

within that folder Ive added a file called AlphaMail.pl (which is were the script is located)

The script is:

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
