Universal Email, Dreamweaver CS4, Completely clueless

Universal Email, Dreamweaver CS4, Completely clueless

I just subscribed to the WebAssist thing after reading over the website and deciding that WebAssist has want I want/need for my website. I also subscribed because it says I do not need any real knowledge of coding and all the technical stuff with websites. That sounds perfect for me.

But, as I'm working with the Universal Email plugin, I'm beginning to realize that, that might not be entirely true.

I've figured out the whole CSS Form thing with no real major problems. But, when I try to incorprate Universal Email with the form so the information is emailed back to my email address, nothing is going according as planned.

I know you're supposed to set up the Testing Server and all that stuff... but I have no idea if I have it set up correctly. I have never used that before. I just have it at None/None and do the Preview in Browser, if it looks good, I upload it via FTP.

As far as I understand, to set up the Testing Server correctly, I have to have a PHP or MySql thing set up on my server? I have no idea how to do that. I know my server can do it, but I don't know how.

Basically... I have no idea what I'm doing. I thought this was going to be a LOT easier (according to your website, it's supposed to be), but it's not... for me.

My form can be found at photoform.php or photoform.html

I'm not sure which one is correct, but neither work. When you click on Submit, an error comes up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and remember, I know nothing about actual coding. I'm ok when it comes to HTML and SOME CSS... but anything beyond that, goes over my head.
