    Javascript cannot really do this, it can but it will not work for anyone without a mail client (folks who use gmail or yahoo mail, hotmail, etc.), and it will not work for folks with javascript disabled.

    Now, what codex linked you to would require server support for asp.Net - many, but not all have this, does your host?

    If not, there are sure to be equivalent scripts for PHP, plain asp (not the .NET variety), jsp, and for formail, and probably for other server side languages. Google will likely help you find one of those if you need them.

    Alternatively, you could just ask your host what they recommend. It is quite possible that they already have a widget for 'Tell a Friend' all setup and ready to go. At the very least, they should know what server side languages they would support for this.

    It probably would not work on your localhost if you do not have an SMTP server setup on it (excuse my ignorance of ASP, if I made no sense).

    True. And the localhost must support asp.NET as well. None of that matters though if the live host doesn't support asp.NET. So I ask designsecrets again:

    Does your [live] host support asp.Net?
    designsecrets,

    Please just use the default font size in your posts, we can all increase it on our end if we have any trouble reading it. If you are having trouble reading the font, increase its size in your browser's view menu.
