Form submit problems

I have created a quote request form and want the submit button to send it to my e-mail address to make sure it is working properly. I have gone through the Universal mail Dialogue box and have set all the parameters but I still do not get the e-mail and the page does not got back to the home page. Also, can I make corrections to the settings without deleting what I have and re-entering everything from scratch.

Please send a copy of your page so I can see how you have implemented Universal email. From your description, it sounds like the trigger is not firing, but I would need to see the code to determine why this is the case.

you can edit the server Universal email server behavior by double clicking it in the serve behaviors panel.

Go to Window -> Server behaviors.

In the list of server behaviors, double click the universal email server behavior.

quote page

I have never sent anyone a page so this is the best way I know how. If there is a better way please let me know.

you have the forms action to post to an email address:
<form action="bbgd@sbcglobal.net"


the action should be left blank so the form will post to itself.


also double check with the host that they support sending email through a php script using the mail() function.

I went into the Universal Email Dialogue box and my email address is only in 2 of the tabs. neither have "action" so I have to ask, is it under the Email Object tab or the To: tab. If I take it off the TO: tab I am told I need at least one address there. Under the Email Objects tab on the Path line, nothing happens when I take that off, save it and view it in a browser and hit submit. So, which on do I remove (address), and then I will check with my ISP. I appreciate your patience.

this is not a function of universal email.


the action is set in the form tag:
<form action="bbgd@sbcglobal.net" method="post" name="frmQuote" id="frmQuote" onsubmit="WAValidateAN(document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2.value,'- Invalid character in entry',true,true,true,true,'',document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,0,true);WAValidateDT(document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,'- Invalid date or time',true,/\b(1[0-2]|0[1-9])-([12]\d|3[0-1]|0[1-9])-\d{4}\b/,'','','',false,/.*/,'','','',document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,1,true);WAValidateEM(document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2.value,'- Invalid email address',document.getElementById('frmQuote').name2,1,true);WAValidateRQ(document.frmQuote.name2,'- Entry is required',document.frmQuote.name2,1,false,'text')">
