    I need a script

    I am in desperate need for a form processing script that can handle e-mail. The script needs to be able to handle file uploads of 100MB and be able to take form inputs and display them in an appealing manner through e-mail.

    The trick is that the script has to run on either an NT IIS 4.0 server, or a Windows 2000 IIS 4.

    If anyone knows of a script or program that can handle this, PLEASE let me know!

    I'm not sure, but I don't think you can upload files that big using browser forms. 100 MB is a huge file, and I think there might be a size limit on what browsers can handle when it comes to uploading.

    Yeah, not even mentioning how long that would take you - no matter what your connection speed is.

    Well, I know that the browser does support the file uploads because I was able to do it through PHP. The problem with that is that the file never made it through to my e-mail.
    It seems that the file won't go through if it is bigger than 4 or 5 MB.

    Could the problem be with my mail server? I have tried two different ones, but they both had the same result. They are both running the same thing. (Windows NT)

    wooo!!! 100MB? Are you kidding? No way a browser will support a file that large. not to mention that it will take forever to upload.

    if the broswer does support a file that large, the mail server wouldn't though. Most isp's limit the size of a file than can be attached. Why not try contacting your isp and ask them if their is a way to increase your limit.

    I know that the browser can handle this large of a file. I have been able to do it (uploaded about 98MB). The files never reached the mail server. I am beginning to believe that the problem is with the mail server, although I am wondering on whether the browser is just not completing the processes.

    As for the ISP part, I am the webmaster for my ISP. I have made sure that the upload size is large enough for this.

    Do you know of anything that will work for this? Whether its PHP scripts, CGI, ASP, Perl, etc...?
