Create embeddable HTML forms that submit directly to your email address.

How to build Serverless HTML Forms (3 simple steps with examples)

With MailSlurp you can receive form submissions directly to your email address — no server or Javascript required. Plus it’s free :)

Why? (it’s simple and free)

These days HTML and the Jamstack can achieve a lot. But how do you process form submissions without a server? Well with MailSlurp you can get form submissions sent directly to your email address — file attachments included!

1. Create an HTML form

Simply create an HTML form with method="post" and action"=https://api.mailslurp.com/forms?_to=YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS" . When the form is submitted all the named inputs will be collected by MailSlurp and sent to the email address provided.

<form 
action="https://api.mailslurp.com/forms?_to=YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS"
method="post">
<!-- inputs will go here -->
</form>

2. Add inputs you wish to receive

<form 
action="https://api.mailslurp.com/forms?_to=YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS"
method="post">
<!-- add any input field -->
<input name="birthday" placeholder="Please enter your birthday">
<button type="submit">Submit</button>
</form>

3. Receive submissions to your email address

That’s it! Now try submitting the form. MailSlurp will read the form values and send them to the email address specified.

// example email contents
Subject: New form submission
Body:
- Birthday: 21/05/90

Additionally, you can control form redirection using a hidden _redirectTo field. Or provide _successMessage and it will be displays by MailSlurp once the form has been submitted.

To include file attachments use <input type="file" name="file"> and set the form attribute enctype="multipart/form-data". For more configuration options see the Forms Documenation.
