    ok I am trying so hard to make a webemail, I read this thread, and the other one which linked me to this one a bagillion times and I still can't figure out what exactly I have to do. Starting from nothing but a blank thing what do i do? Do i make a cgi directory? ahh im goin insane, like the person b4 said, when someone would click send it would go threw their email, mine was doing that, and I think i messed even that up and now when u click submit it dont even do anything, all i want is to click submit and the thing automatically go to my email, and not threw theirs. www.darkangelclan.org/join.html :-( Please help.. look at my source and tell me how im doing it wrong, and how i need to do it

    edit: this might work now, because I moved a close-form tag below your submit button, give it a try

    I couldn't (directly) find out what was wrong, but this is your code,
    Code:
    <HTML>

    that's form mail. he wants web mail.


    web mail is a program usually in perl or php that allows you to recieve and send emails from your browser.

    And what's more there are dozens of them which means that you're usually wasting your time making yet another. Supposedly http://www.hivemail.com/ is good but I very rarely use a webmail client anyway.

    NeoMail (you should be able to find it on SourceForge) and SquirrelMail ( http://www.squirrelmail.org/ ) are two good ones that I'd recommend to anyone looking for WebMail.

    NeoMail is perl based, and most likely will need root access in order to install. It works with POP3.

    SquirrelMail is php based, can be installed without root access. Works with IMAP.

    As far as hivemail goes, it looks good, but so far from what I hear, you can't download the emails stored by hivemail using an email client (since it stores email in a database). It is expensive, unless you are making money off this setup or have a company.
