Hi All,

I am doing a Flash site and need to send the results of my user input to an e-mail address. I have tried and tried to get it to work and can't seem to get it. Here is the actionscript that have attached to the send button:

on (release) {
subject="comments";
recipient="dkaff@yahoo.com";
mailto="dkaff@yahoo.com";
gotoAndPlay("transmit");
}

Can someone offer a suggestion?

Thanks,

David

What you have posted wont be enough, what is at the frame 'transmit'?

Are you going to pass the variables to a php script or something? I'm 99.9% sure Flash can't send an email on its own.

quick questions:

are you using PHP?
if so, do you know how to send an email with PHP?

In that case, here a couple of technotes from Macromedia you may find useful.
