Beginner Q again, looking to learn from experts on here. Say, I have a contact section in the HTML page to let user enter their contact info and a message then hit submit button. The goal is to implement send email functionality - i.e collect the submitted data and send that on to an email account of the web site owner.
My understanding from searching on the web is, either (1) have a server side program to process the data which sends that information onto an email server, or (2) have a href=“mailto:…” in the “< a >” tag (this will require a mail client installed in client side)
I guess option (1) is for backend developer, and option (2) though can be done by front end developer but it is assuming client side has mail client installed thus not a very good solution.
I don’t see (or at least not obvious to me) the Front End Development curriculum here covers how to accomplish the send email functionality. Is it correct to assume this is the domain of back end development, thus wont be part of the front end development curriculum ?
p.s. even if this is not the domain of front end development, i’d still appreciate helpful links to read more about how to implement this functionality.
