Okay here is the problem.

A friend of mine wants a contact and guestbook form on his website. His host (earthlink) supports php but not the mail() functions. However, my personal website does (Globat).

Is there a way to send the information from his domain to mine behind the scenes to use my php forms?

Thanks guys.

Cant you use that allowdomain() function to use scripts on other servers.

okay, if I understand you correctly, use
sendAndLoad("http://MYwebsite.com/script.php"); comming from HIS website. On my website put allowdomain() in my htaccess file?

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll check it out.

allowdomain() is in the flash side. It apparently tells flash that it can use scripts from that domain. I've never personally used it, so I dont know much about it.

System.security.allowDomain("http://mine.com", "mine.com");
var LV:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
submit_mc.onRelease = function() {
LV.email = email_ti.text;
//getURL("http://www.mine.com/folder/guestbook.php", "_blank", "POST");
LV.sendAndLoad("http://www.mine.com/folder/guestbook.php", LV, "POST");
LV.onLoad = function() {
email_ti.text = LV.result; //shows up as undefined.

Still no luck yet? :(
