form based mail on Sambar Server - PHP Development

I have a Sambar 6.0 servr setup and running fine. Using outlook express, I can send and receive mails, so I know the services are running fine. I have tried to implement some of the small tutorials for the sending of an email from a form, and I cannot get it to work. Is ther something special I need to do with a sendmail.pl or a formmail.pl ? I don't even know where these files are supposed to be located. Thanks Michael...

    Default form based mail on Sambar Server

    I have a Sambar 6.0 servr setup and running fine. Using outlook express, I
    can send and receive mails, so I know the services are running fine.

    I have tried to implement some of the small tutorials for the sending of an
    email from a form, and I cannot get it to work.

    Is ther something special I need to do with a sendmail.pl or a formmail.pl
    ? I don't even know where these files are supposed to be located.

    Thanks

    Normally in your cgi-bin directory.... But before you play
    around with that, are you using a windows based server or a linux
    based server? If windows based, you may need to add a sendmail.exe
    into the path, before formmail.pl and sendmail.pl will work. Though
    you can always do the sendmail portion directly in the script, most
    versions of formmail don't... From the sound of things, it sounds
    like the web server is running on your home computer on Windows. If
    so, then you'll need to look for the windows version of
    sendmail.exe, and put it in your path I believe, then you'll need to
    make changes to form mail, as sendmail.exe doesn't work any where
    near the same as the unix sendmail command.... It's possible to do
    form mail on windows hosting, but using formmail.pl is not the
    easiest route to go (and I might add, I hear that most sites refuse
    to allow you to use formmail because of some security risk
    envolved....) The easier method from what I've been reading and
    playing with would be to install PHP scripting on your machine, then
    use PHP to process the form and send e-mail. I've sent e-mail via
    scripts in PHP and it works flawlessly on my website.... I've even
    used it to retrieve web pages and e-mail them to me when I clicked
    on buttons...

    .... Platinum Xpress & Wildcat!..... Nice!!!!
