    Complain to your hosting provider and get them to fix the PHP configuration.

    PHP scripts should be able to create temporary files.

    Alternatively, to create the scratch pad directory:
    1. create a directory on your server. Use "ftp" or "mkdir dir" with shell access.
    2. chmod 777 directory. Again you can use ftp or the shell.
    3. obtain the full direcory path to this directory (you need to know the directory path to your web server!)
    4. put this path in $SCRATCH_PAD in formmail.php
