Email Form

Hi just started hosting with DH. I was wondering is there any easy way to make an email form? Like where people on the site can email me with out using their own email address you know? Thanks for the help.

Yep! Pick up any HTML book so that you know how to write a basic form (or search the net , or this forum, for examples) and go to for instructions on how to configure and use DH’s publicly available formmail script.

Also, certain of the “one-click” application installs already provide that functionality, if you are using them to build your site (Joomla!, for instance, has that functionality “built-in”).


There are two articles on the DreamHost Wiki, PHP Form Processing and PHP mail(), that will should point you in the right direction if you are trying to make your own form/response from scratch.
