Hi Imar,

I hope this is the right place for my question...

I am trying to use the Contact Us form that you taught us how to use in
your book Asp.Net 4 in C# and VB. So just like you did, I adapted your
contact us form to my web page and used a user control--like you did.

Ok, I decided to use GoDaddy.com to host my website but they are saying
that I need to link to their email server using a script which is behind the
scenes but that I can hook it up with this "_gdForm/webformmailer.asp"
call which I should put in place of the send button. I am not sure how to
hook this up, do you have any suggestions to make this work? They are
telling me I have to put the call in the aspx page but then it won't work
or be in sync with code behind. Is there something to hook it up in the
web.config page? I hope this makes sense... Also, I am concerned about
the .asp part, should I be? I'm hoping that I can hook to their server
using their scripting but be able to do it/wire it up in the webconfig??
Oh, I wonder if you have come across this before?

Hi Rob,

How this normally works in classic ASP pages is that you have a form (on
an ASP page) that submits to webformmailer.asp which handles mail sending.
However, that's not how it works in .NET (you could create an HTML page
that submits to webformmailer.asp, but you lose the code behind and lots
of other possibilities).

So, I think you need to ask GoDaddy for the name of a mail (SMTP) server
which you can use in the web.config file as explained in the book.
