You can do this by using the POST or GET tab of the "form start marker" (the little icon that the program places before the first element of each form).
Inside this tab you will insert the URL of the "form mail" script, provided by your host (for example http://yourhost.com/cgi-sys/formmail.pl ).
Usually, any host has a preinstalled form-mail script.
Please notice that with a POST or GET mailform, the "to" address for the email (i.e. your email address, i.e. the email address that receives the data sent by your form) is not supplied directly as in the normal "mail" form.
The "to" address has usually to be included as "Hidden" form element.
This means you will use "Insert >form element" then "Hidden" then
These parameters change, each script might have different parameters.
Please ask detailed specifications to your host as each host uses different scripts.
You might point your host to this page and to the free HyperPublish trial, so they will be able to help you with more detail.
