In order to use Universal Email in a Dreamweaver site you must make sure the following has been done:

1. Create a site in Dreamweaver including the local info and testing server.
2. For the testing server you will need to specify the server model or language you will be working in. You will also need to have the access portion specified.
3. Open up a page that matches the server model you choose for the testing server and save this page to the site.
4. With the page open you can use the Universal Email server behavior.

Continued problems

When I submitted a real basic form to be e-mailed back to me I get this message in the browser above the initial form. I'm trying to test this on my isp host server. Here is the link to that page; Clients\bbgd_test_php

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 550 <mbrosco@sbcglobal.net> No such user here in D:\home\brosco-bartley.com\wwwroot\Clients\bbgd_test_php\WA_Universal_Email\mail_PHP.php on line 254

is the address:
mbrosco@sbcglobal.net

the address you entered in the From field?

It would seam that the SMTP server is refusing to relay messages that are sent from a domain that differs from the domain the SMTP server is hosted on.

It may be that the SMTP server requires authentication to relay emails in which case you will need to use the Pearmail For SMTP mail object.

You should talk to your host about this error to determine what the best option is and whether they support Pearmail.
