Setting Up Tectite FormMail (PHP)

An alternative to MSA Perl FormMail is Tectite PHP Formmail, which has much more customizable options.
Turn PHP safe_mode OFF on your Plesk domain setup.

Log in to your control Panel at https://mydomain.com:8443/
Once logged in, if needed, click on your Domain Name (mydomain.com) to get to the Domain Control Panel. Click on SetUp
Uncheck the checkbox next to PHP Safe Mode


Configure Tectite FormMail

Tectite offers a nifty online Configuration Wizard.

If you were using MSA FormMail, you can use the Configuration Wizard to convert it to Tectite PHP Formmail.

By answering a few questions you'll get a configured FormMail and a sample HTML form ready to upload and use on your server.
There is only one mandatory setting: TARGET_EMAIL
and one strongly recommended setting: DEF_ALERT
