using with the css form builder

I'm happy to help out and share - note that this is just the gist of how to do it....
First install (or make sure you have it installed) Matt's famous Formmail script. If you dont know what this is ..STOP. You are going down the wrong road and would be quicker asking a tech guy at WA how to use one of their other products to get the thing going.

However assuming Formmail is installed you then make a beautiful form with Form Builder. Save it as a php page or it wont work e.g. contact.php

Now you have to POST it. This is done by making the ACTION of your form. (POST and ACTION are parts of the FORM tag that enable browsers to send the results somewheres)
Like this... (its the bit below that begins "method" and ends with "formmail") The other stuff is to show where in the FORM tag its goes

<form class="Standout_Default" id="SimpleContact_Standout_Default" name="SimpleContact_Standout_Default"

method="post" action="">

<input TYPE="hidden" NAME="recipient" VALUE="">
<input TYPE="hidden" NAME="subject" VALUE="Mywebsite Form">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="" />

OK ... lastly I have added a couple of HIDDEN fields that tell FORMMAIL.PL who the RECIPIENT is and where to get the Thank You page (or success page)

You may want to note that the script (formmail) requires the email address box to be called email name="email" so that the person filling out the form can be replied directly to. If you dont call this filed email then you will reply to the server hosting the script.
I hope this helps you get going and puts a set of cool rims on your car...!
