    Please tell me there is a easy solutions?

    I have finally conquer being able to create a form...
    and make it really pretty...and the clients get the information via formail..
    I don't know php, java or how to set up a database.

    My client wants when they get the results that the copy is easier to read.
    (In my simple world i would like to suggest that they just enlarge the copy in outlook)

    Is there a easy script, extension, program...that can do this?

    Thank you..

    You can send the email as an HTML email instead of plain text... and embed font/style information in that.

    man...I don't think i was clear

    Thanks you for the advice...
    but what i meant to say was after the person press submit..
    the client wants the data from the form...to be set up so it's easy to read.

    Yeah... say you have three fields:

    Code:
    Name: Bob
    Subject: Website
    Message: Great site!
    would translate into (using PHP or whatever... I'm not sure how formmail works)

    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    <p><b style='font-size: 14pt'>Bob</b> sent you an email about the Website:</p>
    
    <p>Great site!</p>
    </body>
    </html>

    You will need to use some sort of server sided script (asp or php).

    Create a text variable, append the headings/infomation in the order that you want it to appear, with any formating options.

    Then send the text variable via email to the user using server sided script again.

    A general formmail script just grabs the entries and emails them but they aren't usually very good with different formating options.

    Find out what server sided languages your host supports (asp or php etc) then look for code examples on the net or ask a coder to help you out.
