    Default FormMail won't work on Yahoo web host?

    I am having a great deal of difficulty getting a formMail script I made with the Configuration Wizard to work properly on my Yahoo hosted website.

    This is surprising and confusing to me because several weeks ago, I made a similar form with Tectite, to use on a different website, also hosted by Yahoo, and it is working fine.

    When I was making this new form, I tested it the sample forms on your server and they worked fine, and sent email to the proper address.

    I uploaded the .php file and the contactform.htm and contactform-test.htm up to the server. When I tested formmail's Alert messages, the test failed, with the browser delivering a window that says "Failed to send alert messages."

    When I called-up the contactform-test.htm, and then submitted it, the message returned was, "an error occurred while processing the form."

    HOWEVER, in trying to sort this out, I also uploaded the testmail.php to the server. When I put that on the end of the url and hit enter, the response is "Mail function succeeded."

    I have phoned Yahoo tech support three times over the past 24 hours, and they have been unable to help me. They did refer me to a page with text that said:

    ADDING EMAIL FUNCTIONALITY TO ANY FORM:

    Copy and paste the following HTML code to the <Form> tag in your page.
    <form method=post action="http://us.1.p.webhosting.yahoo.com/forms?login=jeramia97">

    Their tech person said it would be helpful if I referred you to that statement on their email forms page.

    Can you help me sort out this problem?

    Hi,

    Could you please send me the URL to the page that Yahoo support suggested?

    Also, if you'd like send the login details to your server using this secure form:
    I'll sort out the problem and let you know what I find.

    Please include the URL for the form you want to get working.

    Hello Russell

    I am very pleased to be in contact with you.

    Here is the referenced page on the Yahoo help pages:

    http://us.1.p.webhosting.yahoo.com/v/ao/for.html

    I have not yet built the html page with the form on it. I wanted to pass the testing process before I went any further. I will send log-in to server info through your secure form.

    Thank you.

    Phil
