Help needed with form / cgi

On my contact page of the above website, my hosting company created a cgi script as I had originally used a frontpage addin which didnt work.

I dont really understand how this works but seeing as it does im not complaining (will learn it some day when I have the time) what I am after is setting it so that every one of the four boxes must have something in them in order for it to be submitted.

I hope this makes sense.

Cheers for any suggestions.

Who is your web host ?

This kind of error checking should really be built into any reasonable CGI script.

If it isn't, you can find plenty of email scripts out there to use that do offer required field confirmation.

I'd imagine that it's probably down to you not specifying that the fields are required to begin with.

First port of call should be your web host and either ring or email them to ask whether they have a preconfigured or recommeneded email CGI that allows required fields to be specified.
