    Is there anyway I can send an email from a flash form I made in swishmax 3 without php or asp support from my host? My host implied I could still do it with smtp but I don't know how or what they are talking about.

    Does anybody know how to do this? Thank you.

    To use SMTP you still need some application running on the server that will connect to your SMTP server. If they don't allow you to program an SMTP client, maybe they have an SMTP cgi script that you can post to? They definitely need to give you more infromation, though, or I say you find a new host.

    As smoseley has said, you really need some form of server side scripting runnig in the background to achieve this. I think any hosting worth its salt in this day and age should have that covered.

    You could ask someone else (with a different webhost) to allow you remote access
    to their site ... send it remotely through them. You would be depending on them
    for reliability, security, etc.

    Not to mention cross-site posting is a big no-no.
