    Ok, I followed a Dreamweaver tutorial on how to make forms with check boxs and text fields and such, and configured it under properties, to "Action (my email here" in hopes that the forms information would send to my email, and I put the METHOD as GET, and it didn't work. When I click submit after uploading my website, it takes me to the 404 page of my server saying the site could not be found. Any sure-fire ways of making the information send to my E-Mail. Any help is apperciated, thanks!

    It won't work unless you have a script to process the form. If you are using ASP for the code you can use CDONT's to send mail from forms without using a component.

    First, does your host support ASP scripts? If they do then you need to find out if they have SMTP running on that web server and if they don't you need to modify the script to point to another SMTP server. Here's an example and you can modify it any way you like:
