  1. MAPI problems, sending web forms
    If I fill in a form on a website, and press submit it just opens a blank email page outlook express rather than sends the information |I have already filled in. Help. Apparently it is something to do with MAPI but I have dfone a MAPI fix but no difference.

    That is a problem withe the FORM on that webpage, not with your browser.
    Click on View/Page Source and find <form and then type=submit.
    Somewhere between those items is where it goes wrong for them.

    If those people can't get it right, it is either a spoof, phishing for creditcard details, or a webdesigner that's not competent.

    Never used MAPI, perhaps someone else can help here?

    Hopefully!!

    Really need an answer on this, not just for myself. Why can some people send a form and other can't send the same form on the same site.

    Can you give us the link to one of those?
    Have you tried other browsers like Firefox or Opera?
    Forget about IE (or IE-derivatives like Avant).

    uh, it's not necessarily the designer........

    MS Frontpage extensions have some proprietary bots installed that conflict with Mozilla Firefox, because my forms submit perfectly with IE and send the form to webmail correctly, but "hang" in Firefox.

    I've been looking for a fix for 2 days. :knock:
