What program are you working with? Not really sure what you are asking. Is this something you installed via the WestHost Site Manager?

I am using dream weaver
Sorry i was not clear let me try again

when sending form information to an email using cgiemail when successful a simple page with the detail of what was sent show up.

What i would like to do is show the same details as the default cgiemail uses but put that information in a web page that i built. I can make it go to a web page i made but i do not know how to get the information that was sent in the form to that page i built.

Is this the program that you are useing? http://web.mit.edu/wwwdev/cgiemail/

According to their documentation it is not possible.

As of release 1.3, there is no way to make this alternate success page contain information the user submitted in the form. This feature is likely to be added in a future release.

You might be able to hack their code to make it work but you would be better off finding a program that supports what you want. TFMail (http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/scripts.shtml) (Improved version of NMS FormMail) can do it but it is not very well documented.
