I'm trying to send a from from my website as HTML through my Outlook. The
form appears in the body of the Outlook and is sent and received as needed.
When completing the form and hitting the submit button, the data is sent to a
database on the website.

This is all working except after hitting submit button I'd like the same
confirmation page to show up as does on the website. Without it, it appears
to the user that nothing happened. If you continue to hit the submit button
it sends the data multiple times. Any idea on how I can get the confirmation
page to appear after submitting the data?

On the website it does. From within the website -when you fill-out the form
and submit, it goes to the confirmation page.

But, when I go to the website page that is the form and send it as an HTML
document through Outlook....it works exactly right up to the point of the
confirmation page. After hitting 'submit' it just stays on the form page
making it appear that the data in the completed form went no where. But,
when checking the database, it did in fact submit and saved the data.

Any ideas of what I can try to do?
