WebToFirstClass 1.0 by Roberto Hirsch.


This shareware software sends a message from a web page to a FirstClass Server 3.5 or 5.x . Is a CGI program for webservers that follows the webstar standard cgi protocol.

For example (example.html):


The unregistered program writes: "it's a demo" in the message field and in the subject.

If you like it, register the program with the registration application (or go to http://order.kagi.com/?UCS) and enter the code in WebToFirstClass .


First you must configure the FirstClass server:

To configure the application you need to specify the following settings:

A) In the Web2FC menu you have the items:

B) You can make a web page or use the demo page. If you create a page you must use a POST form.

The names for the fields in the web page are:

C) When the webserver launches the cgi, it remains for 5 seconds if there is no activity and then quits.

WebToFirstClass has a shareware price of $30. Paying for WebToFirstClass is fairly simple. Open the Register program that accompanies WebToFirstClass. Enter your name and your email address. Save or Copy or Print the data from the Register program and send the data and payment to Kagi. More specifics on the Register program to follow. Kagi handles my payment processing.

If paying with Credit Card, you can email or fax the data to Kagi. Their email address is sales@kagi.com and their fax number is +1 510 652-6589. You can either Copy the data from Register and paste into the body of an email message or you can Save the data to a file and you can attach that file to an email message. There is no need to compress the data file, it's already pretty small. If you have a fax modem, just Print the data to the Kagi fax number.

Payments sent via email are processed within 3 to 4 days. You will receive an email acknowledgement when it is processed. Payments sent via fax take up to 10 days and if you provide a correct internet email address you will receive an email acknowledgement.

If you are paying with Cash or USD Check you should print the data using the Register application and send it to the address shown on the form, which is:


1442-A Walnut Street #392-UCS

Berkeley, California 94709-1405



You can pay with a wide variety of cash from different countries but at present if you pay via check, it must be a check drawn in US Dollars. Kagi cannot accept checks in other currencies, the conversion rate for non-USD checks is around USD 15 per check and that is just not practical.

If you have a purchasing department, you can enter all the data into the Register program and then select Invoice as your payment method. Print three copies of the form and send it to your accounts payable people.

You might want to highlight the line that mentions that they must include a copy of the form with their payment.

Kagi can not invoice your company, you need to act on my behalf and generate the invoice and handle all the paperwork on your end.

Please do not fax or email payment forms that indicate Cash, Check or Invoice as the payment method. As far as we know, there is still no technology to transfer physical objects via fax or email and without the payment, the form cannot be processed.

Payments send via postal mail takes time to reach Kagi and then up to 10 days for processing. Again, if you include a correct email address, you will hear from Kagi when the form is processed.


WebToFirstClass has a protection scheme. When you pay, I will send you an E-mail with the registration. If you do not have an email address, please enter your complete postal address and please remember we do not know what country you live in so please enter that into the postal address also.
