im pretty sure im not using a server-side script or will need to. i guess i would be using the user's defualt email program although it would make more sense to do it the other way. i just dont think i have a place on the server im using to do it elsewise or maybe i do? thanks
yeah, if your going to gather information in a form in the Flash doc, to be emailed, you will need to use a server-side script to process and send, like php.
