Hi,
When i popst a question to your forum, there is a check box asking me if i want to get an Email notification.
I need to do the same thing in my application. How can this be possible?
Thanks

That can be done in one of two ways.
the first way would be server side by having a cgi or jsp send you an email when something is submitted to it.
the second would be to have a to have javascript call the html mailto link when a form is submitted. the probelm wiht this is that the users mail client will open and they will have to actually send the email to you. They will probably not like this if it pops up without them knowing it is going to hapen whenever they submit something.
hope that helps
Dave
