    using JS you can make one that will put the email in the user's outbox of outlook express. But if they're not using outlook express then it's no use.


    The only real viable way is to use an SS lang. does your host support PERL?

    I got loads of email scripts i've written in perl if u want one.

    ok,



    If your servers perl exe files aren't at "/usr/bin/perl" then you'll need to change the shebang line.

    and if your server's mail send prog isn't at "/usr/sbin/sendmail" then you'll need to change that too.



    You know how to install perl scripts right?
    if not just say and i'll give you some instructions.


    Change your email address at the top of the email.cgi file.
    $myemailaddress = "youremail\@yourdomain.com";

    hope this helps

    k,


    Upload the email and email.cgi to your server, somewhere where you can execute perl scripts.

    Change your email address at the top of the email.cgi file where it's got "youremail\@yourdomain.com".


    When your upload email.cgi make sure you upload it in ASCII mode.

    Once it's uploaded set the permissions/CHMOD it (usually a CHMOD button or something on FTP clients) to 755.

    then it should work.
