    hi there, i have this client for whom i have built a website,
    i used to do form submission and emailing of the contents with formMail,
    that usually host providers have so i just enter that as the action in my forms and that's that basically.
    this client's host has nothing of the sort, no cpanel or anything, it's just a blank space, but he says that asp and .net are supported...
    i tried it with asp and CDONTS but he said they don't support that and i should use .net
    problem is i've never used that before, any hints on how to send form data to an email account using .net?
    i'm guessing my page has to be .aspx but other than that, if it's not similar to asp (which i've had to learn to try and get it to work) i'm stuck...
    if someone could give me some hints or link me up to a good tutorial?
    i'm in sort of a hurry...
    thanks a lot!

    Are you sure this isn't a University project?

    I don't use ASP or .Net myself, but found this basic tutorial for sending an email using ASP.Net. Are you looking for a total solution, or just some code to get you started? Also, have you looked to see if the server supports sendmail (or a variant) so that you could use PHP to handle this?

    I looked at the link sk3pt1c included and it seems to be the overall solution with example code, FYI. The other code included in the zip are libraries for handling mail, forms, etc.
