    Default Sending ZIP file to email address that was input into form

    I'm trying to configure FormMail as an auto-responder, to send some bonus templates, in ZIP format, to the email address entered in the form. I'm not concerned about the problems with auto-responders and spam, since the form will be in a password protected area and will have CAPTCHA, as well.

    I'm only asking for the person's name and email address, in the form (+CAPTCHA).

    I want to then send an email to the entered email address saying something along the lines of "Here are the files you requested, in ZIP format" and then attach the ZIP file (1.2 mb) to the email. The From Address in the email will be a DO NOT REPLY bit bucket address.

    The outgoing email can be either HTML or TEXT. The important thing is that the user receives the ZIP file.

    I've got FormMail doing all kinds of things, but this one has me stumped. Any ideas???

    Oh yes. There is one more thing. I think I know how to do it. But I would like to hear ideas on the best way to capture all of the email addresses that are input on the form.

    capturing email addresses is easy - it's a CSV file u can get formmail to write to on ur server. check out the tectite how to guides

    i'm 99.9% sure formmail's autoresponder doesn't support sending file attachments.

    because the script is open source, u can hire someone to add that for u

    i know the author (Russell) often does development work for people, so why not contact him and ask?
