    I would like a good joining form, where information is required and can be sent through email through and online server rather than opening your email acount through a pop-up, what is the best way to do this if possible?

    Although I dont actually know them, Perl and ASP seem the best solution to this problem (especially ASP since it is run on the web server).
    But because ASP needs IIS and Perl needs UNIX, its up to your ISP unless you use the lesser-known JSP by Sun Microsystems.

    Try Matt's formmail script:
    http://worldwidemart.com/scripts

    (Not sure the url works)

    It works with Perl. You have to have a CGI-bin at your host.

    I've you're lazy like me, you can use http://www.freedback.com - it's a remotely hosted script totally built for you and in return they stick some little buttons on your form.

    Hi,

    If you need a nice form script go to:
    http://bignosebird.com

    The program is called BNBForm, and I used it for both of my websites. Works very well.

    Hope this helps...

    This topic is already being discussed here: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/Forum1/HTML/000979.html
    wluke has provided some ASP code that will handle forms, so if your host provides ASP then that would be the best option. Otherwise, chech out some of the other URLs and posts in the other thread.
