    probably simple to most of you, but i'm having trouble figuring this
    out because of my unfamiliarity with javascript...

    i have a textbox that accepts email address, when the user presses the
    send button, I want that address appended to a text file on my
    server...kinda like a basic mailing list...

    any assistance is appreciated...thanks in advance!
    (fyi, using Dreamweaver MX 2004)

    That requires some server-side scripting ability, either PHP, JSP,
    ASP, or some other TLA :)

    Of these, only ASP allows you to use Javascript.

    Unimportant. You need to find out what server you use and what it
    allows you to do.
