Contact Form

    I have managed to fudge together a working asp contact form using cdosys. To prepare the body for the email I am using
    SEMrush
    Dim Body
    Body = "<p><font face=Arial size=2 color=#333333>" & vbcrlf
    Body = Body & "Title: " & title & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "First Names: " & first_name & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "Surname: " & sur_name & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "Date of Birth: " & date_of_birth & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "E-mail address: " & email & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "Address: " & address & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "Home Phone: " & home_phone_international_dialing_code & "&nbsp;" & home_phone & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "Mobile Phone: " & mobile_phone_international_dialing_code & "&nbsp;" & mobile_phone & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "How did you hear about us: " & how_did_you_hear & VbCrLf & "<br>"
    Body = Body & "What company are you travelling with: " & what_company_are_you_travelling_with & VbCrLf

    What I would really like is the above information to be emailed in a styled table rather than just the text being altered to arial. I am not that experienced with this so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You just use regular html:
    Body = "<table><tr><td>Title:</td><td>" & title & "</td></tr>"
    ... etc. etc.

    I'm assuming that you can use CSS in emails so just use css to style it.

    You are using it for sending email.

    Why not try a saved html file like:

    Dear [Username],
    Sub: [Subject]
    This is for an example and [your dynamic content goes here]
    Thank you
    [sender]


    Then your can use the saved html file by using Streamreader.

    streamreader reader=new streamreader();
    string body=writer.readtoEnd();
    body.Replace("[Username]","Yourstring");

    then send your mail.

    There is no need to use a streamreader, CDOSYS has built in functionality to include a html file (source: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp):
    
    <%
    Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
    myMail.From="mymail@mydomain.com"
    myMail.To="someone@somedomain.com"
    myMail.CreateMHTMLBody "http://www.w3schools.com/asp/"
    myMail.Send
    set myMail=nothing
    %>
    
    Code (markup):

    What do you mean by cache-able?
