Setting up cgiemail

You can run /nyx/web/ to automatically set up a cgiemail form similar to the description below:

First, create a template file that cgiemail will use to fill-in each named field inside the square brackets [] for sending mail: Note, there must be an empty line after the "From:" line !

Subject: [subject]
From: [name] <[email]>


(In the form below, the template file is named "mailbox.tmp" in the root of your webspace)

Second, set up an HTML-page, that defines a form, containing NAMEd fields, that corresponds to the [bracketed names] in the template above, which cgiemail can distinguish: (You must substitute every occurence of the word username with your own username, and the words "Full Name" with something reasonable.)

<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/cgi-bin/cgiemail/~username/mailbox.tmp">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="addendum"
VALUE="Thank you. -&lt;a href=&quot;/~username/&quot;&gt;Full Name&lt;/a&gt;">
From: <INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE="35" NAME="email"> (reply address)
Name: <INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE="35" NAME="name"> (optional)
Subject: <INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE="35" NAME="subject"> (recommended)

Third: test it !
