I'm stuck! I've been trying to set up an email form on my site so potential customers can contact me. Right now I don't want the information to goto a database, but just emailed to me.
if you check http://pyroadvertising.com/contact.html
then just hit the send button, it just takes you to the VB script, but does not perform any actions. I'm not sure if there is something I need to change in my code that DH already has installed on our servers by default or if I need to put PHPmailer on my server and change the code up. Or if there is other code that I can install that may be more stable. I'm open to any advice
This probably should go in beginners, but to me it seems a little more complex than how do I set up Entourage!
Thanks in advance!

I took a look at your form, and that is not going to work. Note that your form code shows:
..and DreamHost doesn't run .asp code. You could use phpMailer, but the easiest way to do what you want (mail the result only, no database storage) is to just use the DreamHost provided formmail.
http://formmail.dreamhost.com/ should give you all the info you need ... if not, just post back here with a specific question,and I'm sure you will get the help you need.
thanks, I have the form working, but now it sends the viewer away from my site to a generic page. Any way to control that?
Yep! There are a couple of ways to do that, both of which are described on the DreamHost formmail page I linked in my earlier response :
1) Use the :"redirect" field:
SWEET! Thank you!
