Server side, no problem right? JavaScript, again the sandbox should prevent such things.. You can offcourse submit hidden forms without the user noticing and such.. Although your users would not like it if they found out

js email

You can use javascript to populate the fields of a mailto, but the user's email client will load and they of course would have to know about it to send it. If you have PHP you can use the mail function. Similar to sending contact form info, you can also have it send other info instead. eg. Sending the webmaster an alert message with an IP # when someone lands on a honeypot page.

Send a message via Yahoo to ravs
Smile ye ye

You can do this, but why u want to do this. cuz i think r, this is not the right way to do u job,

althought here is the concept.

create ur mail class, and then on user logon, just fire that class, it will automatically send the mail.

enjoy..

I wouldn't mind knowing why... and who are you sending email to?
I can't think of any practical use

the reason i would like to know how to do this is so i could have a timer that will increase a counters value by 1 every second, therefore, on unload, call a window.open, or a function to post to this php file to send the time (in seconds) that the user had been on my website, what songs they listened to, and how many they listened to, therefore i can get an idea how many songs that people listen to, and also what kinds of songs my users listen to more. not only that, but tell what kind of browsers are most common becasue therefore i can tell what browser to make it more appeling to.

Okay, but Visitor Tracking via email? Not the best approach. If you're looking for something easy and free, try AXS Visitor Tracking. It's a simple drop in CGI that does all of the work for you. Their site even has an installer. Not only will you get better results, but you're going to save your inbox too.

I agree with Nilpo. User tracking via Javascript/PHP/Email is a messy solution. Besides, onUnload would fire every time people navigate around your site. You might not get the results you expect anyways.

well, i kinda would like to do that onunload, because only if they select a song, it will say "ok i want to email this" by a if then else, therfore if there there long enough, like 1 min, and a song was selected, it would post to another php page, the information, in which would in return, email to me, what song they listened to.

onunload mail

I think a database would be more in order for this, but ...
If you have a PHP page that sends you an email you could use onunload to send it hidden POST values
document.onunload form.submit
