How do I insert a box containing a few questions which are then emailed to me at my hotmail email address?

Is there such a thing? I have heard of mailing lists but am not quite sure this is what I want..
I intend on inserting a box which asks for Name, Phone, and comments, and for that info to be emailed to be as a notification of that persons interest...

Any ideas??

Hi Marcela,

I would suggest using a form to achieve this. You can add a form on your site by clicking on the "Advanced" folder on the widget toolbox at the righthand side of the screen. We have integrated with two great services that allow you to create custom forms for your site: Wufoo and Form Assembly. Both services offer free and paid plans, so you can select the one that is right for you.

These are the steps for adding a form:
1. When you drop a form widget on your page, a dialogue box will open up. Click on the link in the bottom right hand corner and you will be taken to the form service.
2. Sign up for an account and create your form.
3. When you are done click "Get Code."
4. Copy the HTML code (use Ctrl-C or highlight with cursor > right-click > copy) and paste it into the Yola dialogue box that opened when you dropped the widget (use Ctrl-V or right-click > paste to paste the code)

That's it, you will have your own custom form on your site and your responses will be managed in your Wufoo or Form Assembly account.

You can edit your settings on Wufoo or Form Assembly so that the information completed on your form is emailed to you, or you can visit your account to get the information on any forms completed.

Be sure to include links on your site at relevant points that will take your visitors to your contact form page (we have a link editor that allows you to do this). You can then either reply to them personally or post their comments directly onto your site.

I hope this info is helpful, if you have any other questions please post them here.
