    sorry to bump an old topic, but has godaddy updated their servers or done anything to prevent this from still working?
    i changed the mailform in the .fla file to my gmail account and modified the php file correctly, and still she wont work.
    ps i get a confirmation saying that it did work, but no email.

    thanks in advance!

    Try some of the later attachments on page one, not just the one from the first post. Also, the gdform on godaddy has to go away. I never got any of these to work with the form still in the root directory. Download it to your hard drive then delete it from the server.

    And be careful how you upload PHP files. Upload them in ASCII Mode and do not use caps in any of the file names and no spaces.

    if anyone else has a problem with this,
    check out this tutorial here. (or just download the source)
    and use this php code:

    Code:
    <?PHP
    $theName = $_POST['theName'];
    $theEmail = $_POST['theEmail'];
    $theMessage = $_POST['theMessage'];
    $to = "youemail@youremail.com";
    $subject = "Subject";
    $message = "Name: " . $theName;
    $message .= "\nEmail: " . $theEmail;
    $message .= "\n\nMessage: " . $theMessage;
    $headers = "From: $theEmail";
    $headers .= "\nReply-To: $theEmail";
    
    $sentOk = mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
    
    echo "sentOk=" . $sentOk;
    
    ?>
    thanks to the geezer for all your work also!

    still not working for me

    Help, I am really tired of searching the net for this.
    I cannot get goDaddy to work with these php files. I am using the f8forum.zip files. I doon't have Flash 8, I am using Flash CS3, but I am using as2, so I am assuming all is good there.
    I deleted the "gdform.php" and the "gdform.php.bak" plus the "gdform.asp" off the rot level of our goDaddy hosted site.
    I then put the destination email into and then uploaded your "contactmailform1.php" file to that root level and made sure that path was entered into the "formmovie1.fla".
    I then ran the movie, made a swf and placed that in a AP div in dreamweaver and uploaded it all to a different level of the site and opened the page in Safari and entered a form. It said it was successful, but I have never received an email. Sigh. What must I do to get this to work with goDaddy?

    Hey Geezer-you are the man! Question for you on this-we have successfully put this in to our Flash file, however when we test it by entering information in to the form for the first time, and click send, it just sits there. HOWEVER, when we hit "reset" and try it again, it goes and works just fine. Just because we are picky, how can we get this to not have hit reset to the send the information the first time we enter the info? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Sending email from Flash

    Hi,

    Thanks very much for the f8form.zip file for sending email from Flash via PHP handler, it worked a treat, had no problems. Just one question if I may, when a person fills out the form the results come back to the owner of the site (in their mail box) when you click on that email to send a reply is there anyway you can set it up so their email comes up as the recipient and not the site email address, if that makes any sense!
    Thanks
