Stumped by Formmail


I’ve searched high and low and am starting to feel like I’m missing something that may be obvious to more experienced users.

Here’s my attempt at formmail:

Preferred Time

Estimate of numbers attending

Venue Type

Does the venue seat whole school? Yes No

Does the venue allow for projection? Yes No

Does the venue allow for amplification? Yes No

Comments and Requests:


No matter what I do, I can’t get the contents to email to my desired address.

Anyone have any thoughts?

With hope,


Can anyone help?

I have found that Dreamhost’s formmail has trouble with current web standards. For example, you have this:

<input type="checkbox" name="Preferred Day" value="checkbox" id="PreferredDay_4">

which ideally should be

<input type="checkbox" name="Preferred Day" value="checkbox" id="PreferredDay_4" />
<label for "PreferredDay_4">Friday</label>

But I couldn’t get that to work either. The only thing I found that worked was this:

<input type="checkbox" name="Our current website needs a complete redesign.">
Our current website needs a complete redesign.</input>

without the “label” tag, which seemed to cause problems.
