eMail updating

I have an unusual request from a client. Is there a way that an email can be sent that would go to a section of the site and auto post? For instance if we have a site for weather and the client issued a alert that would be sent to individual email boxes BUT would need to go to a specific area of the site and populate that area. The general email would be a matter of group setup. If needed a email could be sent that specifically goes to the site area.

Hope this makes sense!

Thanks

Don't ask me exactly how, ;) , but I would think that if you had a page with an iframe, you could post your mail to a database on the server, and the iframe would fetch the contents of that mail from the database. It probably would have to be set up with some php. Wait until Eric comes along... ;)

And as to auto posting, with php you may perhaps be able to have it post every day/week/full hour/whatever at a certain time.
Ha en riktig god dag!

Hi Byron,
Can you explain a little more. You want a form to auto post when a client loads the form from an email that has the link to it?
So you send out an email to users.
The email has a link to the form.
The user clicks the link in the email and it loads the form and auto submits it?
Explain the exact sequence of events and what you want to have happen.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hello Eric

Here is the situation

My client wants to send one email to a group of people and wants this email to post to a specific web page within a site built WITH RSD. The site is protected with CCs Access Mgr.

Hope this makes sense

Thanks

I'm still in need of the sequence of events, where they come from and where they go.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

I'm sorry but I got very busy (and it was giving me a headache!) And subbed this out.
