    Directing custom forms to e-mail

    Using Website builder and an HTML section, I inserted the code for a job application form from the client's old site. The form appears and fills correctly. The question is how do I direct a filled-in form to an e-mail of choice? Using the old "<form action="mailto:...." of course now opens a message in the sender's e-mail client, which is not acceptable even though it works. Is there code that will allow this to work the same as the built-in contact form when clicking "Submit"? The client however prefers the form to go to a specific e-mail address other than the address associated with this account.

    Hi @BruceB. Thanks for posting. Not sure if it helps, but if you create a form using what's available in Websites + Marketing, you can set a different email address for the form than what is set as the standard address for the site. I don't know if the fields that are available are suitable for your needs, but I wanted to make sure you knew you can change the email address. Hope that helps.

    My suggestion is to do a google form as the Website + Marketing system does not allow for customization in that fashion
