Email forms
Email form is a type of contact form. It is a small HTML script that uses PHP to send all information entered by visitors to an email account. If you want the visitors to contact you, you can place an email form on your website.
Email forms are built with the help of email form builders (generators, creators) and are processed by a form processor ( a script written in PHP). The processor sends the content of web forms by email. It is a means of collecting, analyzing and managing your website visitors' feedback.
Every website should have a section that allows its visitors to contact the owners, webmasters or ask for support. Email form processor enables users to create a dynamic web site form for collecting online submitted information which is stored in a searchable database.
A form on the website allows the web site visitors to contact you by simply completing the web form. Some forms may include CAPTCHA test, which is basically a graphic image that contains some letters which your visitors have to type (to verify that they are not an automated spam robot that sends spam through mail forms). You are able to change the appearance of the email form page as well as the fields that appear. The form may be located on your own website or on the free formtomail host's site. The site administrator has to create a "thank you" page for the form and host it on his site. Often it is possible to view statistics on the use of your form.
Webforms are defined in formal programming languages such as HTML, Perl, Java or .NET. For example:
