Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and Microsoft FrontPage 2002 support sending form results in e-mail. To do this on Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), you must configure your form to send results to e-mail and configure the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions to deliver the e-mail to an e-mail transport. This article describes how to set up FrontPage 2000 and FrontPage 2002 forms for e-mail on IIS.
Define your form
Set up your e-mail transportTo send form results to an e-mail host, the FrontPage Server Extensions require a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server. The FrontPage Server Extensions do not support any other form of e-mail server software.
To send e-mail from IIS, configure the FrontPage Server Extensions in the FrontPage Management Console on the Microsoft Windows NT Server that is running IIS to deliver the mail to an e-mail transport. To do this, follow these steps:
For transport to work, you must use the same interface (Microsoft Management Console) that you used to install the extensions.
Possible error messagesIf the SMTP host is present when the form is created, but the SMTP host is later removed (and the form has not changed since then), you receive the following error message on a default page that is returned by the form when the form is submitted:
The following event is logged in the application event log of the server that is running the FrontPage Extensions:
User: Please report details to this site's webmaster.
Webmaster: Please see the server's application event log for more details.
If e-mail is not configured when the form is created, you receive the following error message from FrontPage 2000 or from FrontPage 2002 :
Event 160005 Bad response from SMTP server
If you choose not to remove the e-mail recipient and the extensions are not configured correctly when the form is filled out and submitted, the form is refreshed but a background image (if previously present) does not appear, and the address line in your browser is changed from this:
The FrontPage Server Extensions have not been configured to send e-mail. Please direct your system administrator or Internet Service Provider to the instructions in 'Setting Up Your E-mail Options on Windows' or 'Setting up Email options on UNIX' in the Server Extensions Resource Kit.
Would you like to remove the e-mail recipient? (Yes or No)

If the form is configured to save results to a file or to send e-mail at the same time and the FrontPage Server Extensions are not configured to handle e-mail, a 0-byte file is created. It does not contain any data, you do not receive an error message, and the mail is not sent.
