Re: E-Mail Registration Process


You probably know this, but Luigi can set you up with a simple form 
processor to email the form data to a given address.

I use html forms, for interim meetings and other things. My current form is at:

The action line is:

	<form method="post" action="">

Luigi just needs to map the file name (of the file holding the form) 
to an email address where the data gets sent.
