How to Use a GoDaddy Form Mailer (6 Steps)
Set the e-mail address for the GoDaddy form mailer within your account. Log into your Account Manager. Under “Products” and click “Web Hosting.” Click “Launch” beside the hosting account you wish to use for your form mailer.
Click “Form Mail” under the “Content” section. Enter the e-mail address where you want submitted forms to be sent under “Forms Email Address.” Click “Continue” and “Update” to verify the e-mail address.
In your HTML file where you want the form to appear, enter this code:<form action='/gdform.php' method='post'>
<input type='hidden' name='subject' value='New E-Mail Subscriber' />
<input type='hidden' name='redirect' value='http://www.yoursite.com/thanks.html" />
<p>First Name:<input type='text' name='FirstName' /></p>
<p>Last Name:<input type='text' name='LastName' /></p>
<p>E-Mail:<input type='text' name='email' /></p>
<p>Your Message:<textarea name='comments' cols='50' rows='20'>
Tell us what you think of our new website!</textarea></p>
<input type='submit' name='submit' value='submit'/>
</form>You can edit this code to suit your needs. The above items are examples, including the subject, redirection page, first name, last name, e-mail and message.
Save your HTML file with the new code.
Upload the HTML file to your server using your preferred FTP client, just as you did with your initial website files.
Visit your website to see the new form. Test the form by filling in all of the fields and using a different e-mail address than the one you entered in Step 2. Once you submit the form, you should receive an e-mail to the e-mail address you entered in Step 2 with the submitted information.
