I have placed a php file in a folder on a web server that will send an email based on the contents of the text used to call it.
For example: if (in a web browser) I put in the address box:http://mywebsite.com/myfolder/myphp.php?TOemail@example.com&FROMfirstname.lastname@example.org&SUBJECT=TestSubject&MESSAGE=TestMessage
and hit "Enter", an email will be sent to email@example.com
without any futher action by the user.
How do I make my Arduino and Ethernet Shield accomplish the same task that I can so easily do from a web browser on my computer?
That is how do I request to go to a new URL once I am connected to a server. My real goal is to cause a sensed input on the Arduino to generate an email alert.
Thank you so much (mille grazie)
