Forms can add a lot of interactivity to your pages.

In order to do so - you need to have programs running on servers that can handle the forms.

The programs typically receive the form inputs and then send them to your email account.

Instead of simply placing an email link that will let the user's mail program pop up, you can force the user to deliver certain inputs by having the mail sent from a form.

It's typical to have certain required fields on the form such as senders email or name, along with added optional fields.

If you don't know what a form is, or how to create one, you should check out the HTML tutorial on the topic.

If you want to check form inputs before submitting them, you should consider the javascript tutorial on the topic.

No matter how your form is composed - you will need a program that can receive the inputs and mail it to your account. That is what you will find on this page.
