Email Forms for Data Collection
IRT provides an email server script called FormMail, which allows you to send email from your Web page. Because of security issues, use of FormMail is restricted. Any site hosted on IRT's server (med.stanford.edu) can make use of FormMail, once key information has been added to an approved list.
If you have a form that is no longer working, or wish to set up a new form, using FormMail for the first time, let us know.
