Auto Respond with Message

Postby LazyCarrot » Mon Apr 09, 2012 6:09 am

novice coder alert here... :help: so as much handholding as you can muster please :)

I want to send an automated email reply in which the email message includes some information supplied by the user, so...

The user is presented with a form requesting: email address, name, postal address, postcode, telephone. These are entered and they press 'Submit'. (ok - i've got this far :D )

I then want to auto send an email to the email address they specified with a message containing their name address and postcode.


What I need is coding to allow me to extract the appropriate data from the form
Incorporate that information in a text message in the body of the email
and send the email to the specified email address
