Post 3+ Months Ago

Got a template, revamped it to suit the client's wants, it has an email contact form with in the flash movie, heres where my problem starts, I dont know the action script to use for the send button, I don't know what to put on the php server side, this is the last lil bit for the site I cannot for the life of me figure out. Are these contact forms all standard and any scripts can be used with them, or are they script specific to how they were created?
Thank in advance for any help ANYONE could shed on this.

I have read that tutorial, thats not what I need....it has one built into it, that I would like to use as to not messing up the whole look of the template, as shown on the link provided under contact link.

Thanks though,

WC

You dont have to use the Flash email provided on the Kirupa site, just follow the tutorial to get yours working.

If you have the fla file for that site [ which I presume you do ] all you need do is grap the contacts part and amend it like on the tutorial.

Ok thanks to Enigmatic this whole thing got figured out, many thanks to him for spending the time with me on this, but one last thing is amiss....the page after the sender sends the email off doesnt pop up curious as to why this may be

Server Side Script is as follows:

<?php
$sendTo = "postmaster@blah blah blah.com";
$subject = "Website Inquiry";

$headers = "From: " . $_POST["name"];
$headers .= "<" . $_POST["email"] .">\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $_POST["email"];

$message = $_POST["message"];

mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);

echo "Thank you for your submission. We will reply to your email as soon as possible";
?>
Anything look amiss??
