hi to all - i am a novice with this web design but have managed to create a site so far but not published it anywhere yet.
i would like to be able to have a details page where people can put in there details like name...email address...phone number etc that when complete they can hit a send button and it comes back to me at my email address

can anyone help?

you will need to obviously get a host, preferably one that supports cpanel, and then you will need a php script that will enable the user to send the email directly from your site without making the user go to an email program to reach you. i can give you the code to do so. you will need to set up and email account on your web server and keep the spam filter OFF. you cant use hotmail or something like that becuase it will automatically block any messages sent from an anonymous place that it cant verify. so you will have to use an email address created on your hosting server, and once you do that, I will configure the code for you so that it will work and send it to you. PM me or email me. email me for quicker responce at jstgermain@methodcomptech.com

I think jstgermain is being a little over-enthusiastic. There are plenty of free, remotely-hosted form processors (http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Remotely_Hosted/Form_Processing/) that you can use with any half-decent hosting service. If you have (or get) a host with server-side support then you can install your own processor, but it's unnecessary.

i personally think it is a pain to use a remotely-hosted form processor, but that is my opinion and preferance. but whatever he wants i guess. :)
