mail tag question

Recommended Posts

Im a littleor (alot) confused here, and need some help please.

The following code comes from CDML referance from filemaker.

<form action="FMPro" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="-DB" value="contacts.fp5">

<input type="hidden" name="-Format" value="displaypage.html">

<input type="text" name="-MailTo" value="Keith@Company.COM">

<input type="text" name="-MailCC" value="Dirk@Company.COM">

<input type="text" name="-MailBCC" value="Terry@Company.COM">

<input type="text" name="-MailFrom" value="Chris@Company.COM">

<input type="text" name="-MailSub" value="The Subject">

<input type="hidden" name="-MailHost" value="SMTP.Company.COM">

<input type="hidden" name="-MailFormat" value="mail.txt">

<input type="submit" name="-View" value="Send Message">


In this line "<input type="hidden" name="-MailFormat" value="mail.txt">" what is mail.txt referring to. Is it a text file with replacement tage in it in the web folder under filemaker unlimited. And if it is I did not know you could use replacement tags in files other than htm or html.. I,m a bit confused.

Please help

Thanks Stu
