View Full Version : form e-mail
11-28-2001, 10:50 AM
When I fill out my form I get a message that it has been sent to my e-mail address, but when I check my e-mail it is not there. I have
<FORM ACTION="/cgi-sys/mailform"METHOD="POST"<INPUT TYPE=hidden name = "recipient"= value="my e-mail address">
before the <table> that begins my form.
My send and reset info is after </table> and followed by </form>
I'm not sure if I have a form problem or an e-mail problem.

I have 4 messages in my shell account. These would be the 4 replies to my forms. How do I open these?
You would either set your Shell account to forward to another email address you have available to you, at that time you will be given the option to forward those emails or you can access your Shell account like any other POP account using the information provided in your Activation Letter.
Just remember you cannot have your Shell forwarded and still access it as a POP account, it is one or the other.
I hope this helps :)

I'm not understanding the shell account. Do I sent this up in Outlook using the account setup info that came with my activation letter?
My shell account is "name"@mydomain.com. I want to receive my mail at at mydomain.com but with a different "name". I know this can't be too complicated, but I am missing a big step somewhere. Thanks for the previous response.
Hi again Jean,
To access your shell email account as a POP account you would set it up in Outlook with the information that was provided you in your Activation Letter.
username = shell name
pop = pop.yourdomain.tld
smtp = mail.yourdomain.tld
If you want to use an email address such as "YourName@YourDomain.tld" then you could set that up as an Alias that forwards to your Shell account or simply turn your Catch-All on, which I believe you already have.
Having your Catch-All enabled allows any email sent to any address at your domain to go into that single account.
Hope this helps further,
- Does my Catch-All have to be my shell account?
Hmmm have to ask Santa about that :QTsanta: -

Still unable to get my form replies. I cannot use POP3 the way Outlook has been set up here. Can I use Outlook Express instead? I tried using info found at aota.net.Email/outlookexpress.php4. I replaced .tld with .com because this is my extension. Was this correct. I'm hoping it is something simple like that. I fear it has something to do with our server setup. I'm thinking of trying from a computer at another location using a different server to try to narrow down the problem. I thought this would be the easy part!
