my customer has his site running on NT, and i am redesigning it.
there will be big changes, but those are no problem.

i tried a half day to get a simple mail script running and did not succeed.

-they have no perl access
-no cgi dir altough isp told me there would be one
-limited vbwin and c-scripts
-mercur mailserer

how the heck can i send that friggin' form ?
i thought about something like formmail.
it was so easy on unix...

First things first... Not having PERL or any other server-side language doesn't have anything to do with NT (you can run PERL/PHP/whatever on NT, too), so it's a limitation of your web host. Looking at the specs, you practically can't use anything to do what you want (e-mail form). Anyway, ask your host to tell you more about "vbwin" (this would be Visual Basic, but in what context, used in ASP or by generating CGI executables) and "c-scripts" (now that you mentioned C, I think that your web host offers you CGI capabilities, but you'll have to use windows executables instead of say, raw PERL files on Unix). But, as I've said, ask your web host for more information...

And it's all for naught if there's not an SMTP server available to you that will accept messages from the web server. You'll be completely at your provider's mercy on that.

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.
