Form mail problems with Form Assembly and Wufoo Form.

Using Form Assembly or Wufoo Form, is there a way to create a form mail response page that simply says "Thank You" without big, cheesy ads? Or is there a way I can go around Form Assembly or Wufoo form to create a form emailer? Thanks.

just to clarify i bit - the free forms wont reply to your user in the way you want but your email account can. :) google- auto response email | auto responders email | auto reply email.

I've done a lot of investigation into these email auto responders. Unfortunately, from what I can see.. most if not all email auto responders tend to have some kind of ad to help compensate for their free service. There are some whose ads are more subtle than others. I'll try to figure out which ones they are and get back to you if you'd like.

Thanks for everyone's replies so far. I wasn't really looking for an email auto-responder, but a web page I could redirect to after the user hit "Submit" on the form mailer that said something like "Thank you. Your comments have been sent." The Wufoo and Forms Assembly "Thank You" pages had intrusive ads on them.

I do have a little php file that does what I need, in that when I hit the submit button, I can dynamically generate a "thank you" page. But being a cheap guy, I am using a free hosting service that doesn't allow that type of program to use php mail() from their site. I'll probably have to upgrade and pay a little bit to enable that service. Very painful for us cheap guys.

Hi Steve,
Wufoo does have an option to have a form redirect to another url once it is submitted, although to get this feature you have to have a paid subscription and I believe their least expensive one is $9.95 per month. If you would like more information I can give it to you.

I don't know if this is possible.. but you could maybe make your own thank-you page. When the person hit submit - it can open up a new window via a hidden link that says "thank you" ? You can hide the Thank-you page by dragging it out of your menu.

Thanks for the jot form info. I've only looked at it for 30 seconds, but it looks promising. I'll have to spend some time with it to see if I can get it to do what I want.

Thanks Alex. JotForm is working very well. I have a clean "Thank You" page and everything.

Hi Jenalis,

Jotform can definitely be used - there are quite a few posts that you may want to look at: http://forum.yola.com/yola/searches?q...
