I've done formmail in the past w/ Matt's scripts but know that's not a good idea now....I've done the layout in DW2020 but do not know how to make it work, the site is on a secure server....any fast response would be appreciated or a link to some helpful info....would be great.  I've searched on the web, oh they have free forms but want to charge monthly for it's service. So I guess I need a server side app?  TIA, Cyn

Dreamweaver has no form processing capability  Start with your web host.

 

1. Which server-side processing languages are supported by your hosting plan?

 

2. Did you contact your web host and ask them if they have a form-to-email script you can use?  Many hosts do  but you have to activate it from your server's C-panel.

 

3. If your host doesn't have scripts you can use and you don't have much skill with programming and web security to prevent your forms from exploitation by hackers and other bad actors,  I think it's very wise to use a 3rd party solution.  See links below.

You have to ask them that question.  Google's reCaptcha is the defacto standard now.

To thwart bots, use Google reCaptcha version 3.  NOTE: You need a unique Google key pair to invoke this app on your site. And I highly recommend that you conceal your secret key inside a server-side script.
