Hi,

I want to have an email sent to a department head. I have the form made in an HTML page. I created a php page with the same content and tried to insert the Universal Email tool.

First--Do you have to have a dynamic site set up? Can you use this tool with just a php page and HTML page?

Second--What are you supposed to insert into the Body content if you are using Dreamweaver.

While the ads say you don't need to do any coding, it seems you need to understand PHP how to set up a dynamic site, correct?

I simply want a form to be sent to an address what is the best solution? I code in HTML, but I'm brand new to PHP.
Help.

Yes, you need to have a Dynamic Site set up. if your site is not dynamic, Dreamweaver will not populate the bindings tab with the dynamic data bindings for you to use when creating the message body.

In the training resources section of the site, there is a tutorial for setting up a Dynamic site:

The creating an HTML email tutorial in the Solution recipe Section of the Universal Email page will walk you through setting up the email on the body tab of Universal Email:
