I am trying something very basic as I am very new to Web Design.

When someone fills out a form and clicks submit, a default page letting the person know their submission was sent opens. For me, the data is then sent to my e-mail so I may read the persons question, request or whatever. What I am trying to do is once the person submits the form, I want the data to still go to my e-mail but instead of showing a default submission page I would like them to see a confirmation/submission web page I created. I am using Yahoo as my web host and it is their default submission page I see. Please help.

The cgi mail script usually provides an option for which page to send the user to upon completion of the form

CGI mail script. Um, it seems I am in over my head. Could you elaborate a more please. So I can be clearer, I would like the information from the form sent to my e-mail, but I would like the user to see a "Thank you " web page after they press the submit button.

The link you provided is a great tool for those who know how to code. Sadly, I am not that person.

My webhost already provides the mail server people send the forms to. However, they only see a generic "form submitted" page after their submission and the submitted data goes to the e-mail address provided by my mail server. Instead of seeing that generic "form submitted" page I want them to see a thank you page I created. How do I do that?

It seems they aren't that savvy. The guy eluded to some sort of re-direction after a person submits the form. Is that possible and how do I do that?
