Misk.com has developed its own Mail Form service since we do not support dynamic languages such as php. Instead, we've built our own framework that simplifies building mail forms and works with our highly reliable grid hosting service.
Mail Form Files
.MF Configuration File
You will need a text file ending in .mf that contains all the settings for your mail form. Your HTML form needs to be setup to post to this .mf file. See the example below for a better idea.
These variables are used in the .MF file. All values are required unless marked optional.
The from email address that will show up on the message
The domain of this email address must be the same as the domain being hosted (e.g., @firstname.lastname@example.org). The address itself does not have to exist, but it would be a good idea so you can receive bounces and responses.
The email address of the person you want the form mailed to
You can use any email address. It doesn't have to be at your domain.
To send to multiple people, add multiple @to elements with one address per @to. We allow having a maximum of ten @to addresses. BCC is not possible.
The subject of the email message
We support adding variables from your html form into the subject line. Just put in %VAR% in your subject line, where VAR is the name of the form's input tag.
The page you want the visitor to see once they successfully submit the form and the message is sent
The page is relative to your domain's directory. For example, if your html form page is in the same directory as the .mf file, just enter that file name (e.g., @redirPage=success.html).
The body of the email message
You can list %FORM_DATA%, which will write all all the form variables for you and send them in an email.
You can list each form variable individually. Just put in %VAR% for each form element, where VAR is the name of the form's input tag.
We support HTML email messages. You just have to start your email with <html or <!DOCTYPE to have us automatically detect and send your message in HTML format. See our example file above which makes use of HTML email.
OPTIONAL - Only needed if using Captcha to block form spam
Enter the page relative to your domain's directory. For example, if your html form page is in the same directory as the .mf file, just enter that file name (e.g., @recaptchaFailPage=repatchafail.html).
See How To Change Recaptcha Colors for details on how to customize the look and feel of the reCaptcha widget.
