At my work, we have a 'Request a Quote' page in our website, and my boss told me the man before me had managed to get his code so all the Request forms would be e-mailed to him in the same format as they were on the website, not the usual way that forms send to email, like what's posted below."Firstname=JohnLastname=SmithEmail=john.smith@company.com"Does anyone know how to do this code, or know how to get a form that has been submitted to send to an e-mail to show up in the e-mail the exact same as it shows up on the website? My boss says it is like he gets the page e-mailed to him, but he knows all they did was submit the request.Thanks in advance!!! Sorry if this is a CSS or Java question...SarahA Team Apparel

Don't you have the old form at hand, so that you can see how it's working?I suppose what he meant was that he is receiving an HTML email, that happens to use the styles and HTML as in the page.

The old code was so messy and most of it was incorrect as is that I couldn't find anything that resembled how it was working. I had my HTML teacher helping me trying to find this code, and even she couldn't find it.

I don't know how to format the e-mail script, if it requires using anything other than HTML.
probably not. There's a whole thread going on in the General sub forum about sending HTML email. you should check it out.http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=32287

What scripting language are you most comfortable with / do you know which are supported on your work's ftp server? For some, you simply create an email object and fill in the blanks. The script shouldn't have been complicated enough to over-complicate and make a mess of it like this past guy seems to have done.

well, if it's using a server side language to send the mail (which I suspect it is), then there's not much you can do if you only know HTML, however, that link should get you up and running with constructing a simple email using PHP's mail function. Constructing headers, body (with HTML formatting), etc.

I have responded to all the PHP I've seen the way people look at me when I type simple HTML. I think my boss will just have to wait, because our old guy didn't have any PHP files, and yet he could send HTML e-mails. Yet I don't know how to do this. Oh well.

no one has his contact info, or previous copies of his work? Even if its old and messy, we might have better luck trying to make sense of it.

I might be able to find a previous copy of his request form, and upload it here, to see if anyone can make sense of it. From what I get out of reading it, and I don't get a whole lot, it's just a bunch of mess, and there isn't much helpful. Would that be okay?

Okay, I don't know the best way to do this, but sorry that the form is so long... Here is what the previous guy used.
