Php Form Mail


#1

I run several static websites that used Formmail.pl to submit forms.
Recently Dreamhost has disallowed use of the program because it is
outdated. They suggest using formspree.io as a relay for conveying
messages.

While I have done this as a temporary measure I am not happy with
emails passing through third parties, especially if they are storing
the last 100 messages.

There seem to be a number of php forms available on the web but I am
not in a position to judge their relative merits. Could someone who
is familiar with these forms recommend one I could use bearing in mind
that I have no knowledge of the language.

You can use http://myphpform.com/

I use it on my site and it works great. However, you will need to have some knowledge of PHP.

Hi kjodle,

Thanks for the link. The site appears to offer a number of tutorials
on setting up form mail. I will work through them before putting up
the page on my sites.

Hi again kjodle,

I have instlled the program and it is working like a charm.

Although I still do not know any php it was easy enough to modify the
file to suit my purpose.

Thanks again for the tip.

Regards

Thank you kjodle. It took a while as my ISP decided to take a nap this Sunday afternoon. But I have it working!

Now to “make it pretty”. :slight_smile:

Another option for an out of the box solution is formmail.php from here: http://www.tectite.com/formmailpage.php. The script itself is open source, free, and maintained. They will sell services and extras. It seems to address the vulnerabilities that formmail.pl had. I have configured it for use on a couple of sites with success and it seems to do the job.
