    Hi,

    Use <textarea></textarea> tags instead.

    hi

    for email address try such as those:
    Code:
    <input type="text" name="email" size="36" />
    (to vary the broadness diversify the size-value/number 'size="36"' above)

    and for the content:
    Code:
    <textarea name="tellme" rows="10" cols="35"></textarea>
    (also can be modified by changing the numbers)

    by the way, finally to get the script working i think you need an additional field for the name (realname), cause "realname" and "email" are required fields in formmail if i am right.

    best, erik

    Hi there,

    thank you for looking into this, here is the script, you can see it at www.caravansary.org/contact
    I am not clear in which line I include the textarea bit


    <form action="/cgi-sys/formmail.pl" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="myemail address">
    <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="FormMail E-Mail">
    <br /><br />
    <input type="text" name="email" size="31" value="Visitor E-Mail"><br />
    <input type="text" name="tellme" size="31" value="E-Mail Content"><br /><br />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="contact/redirecto.htm">
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    Hi,

    Replace this:
    Code:
    <input type="text" name="tellme" size="31" value="E-Mail Content">
    with this:
    Code:
    <textarea name="tellme" rows="5" cols="40">E-Mail Content</textarea>
