    I am using FETCH on a MAC. My form works (created on Adobe Page Mill) on my broswer (old version of Netscape). Some people who use PC's have not been able to get the form to work - what happens is that an email window opens with the (mailto) address. If you send the email, there is no content.

    I am trying to locate the problem. Is it something that I need to specify in FETCH???

    Thanks for any tips - this is driving me crazy, but I think it has to be a common problem.

    Note: The script in Adobe is simply:

    then: POST

    It works on my MAC with an old version of Netscape.

    This sounds like an issue with the script itself, rather than with Fetch. Fetch apparently is uploading the script correctly (or else it would not work on any browser), but the script itself is not compatible with some browsers. You should contact Adobe support or a web scripting consultant for more information.

    If the attempt to submit the form invokes the mail client, the problem is much more likely to be in the page than the script. Pagemill is somewhat famous for creating pages that are not cross-browser/OS compliant. If you post the URL of the page in question I'll take a look.

    Please also e-mail to so I'll know you have replied - I don't visit this board very often.
