Help with mail script
« on: December 09, 2010, 02:37:00 PM »
hello,
I am having a problem with my mail script. Right now the first and last name, email address and comments are required but the phone number is not required. I would like to change this script so that the phone number is require instead of the comments. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks
