SUMMARY

Microsoft FrontPage 2002 supports sending form results in e-mail. On a server running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), you must do the following:
  • Configure the FrontPage Server Extensions to deliver the e-mail to an e-mail transport.

    -and-

  • Configure the form to send results to e-mail.
This article describes how to configure the FrontPage Server Extensions and the form.

Setting up Your E-mail Transport

To send form results to an e-mail host, the FrontPage Server Extensions require a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server. FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions do not support any other form of e-mail server software.

To send e-mail from IIS to an e-mail transport, configure the FrontPage Server Extensions in the IIS Management Console on the Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000 server that is running IIS. Use the appropriate method for your situation.
