So it looks like that, but I want it to send the information on the page to me automatically when they click submit; not popup like an Outlook or Netscape email program. This way it is clean and easier to use. Anyway, I'm not sure how to do it. So far the only thing I have found is like this:
<head><title>My Comments Page</title></head>
Submit any comments you would like to me.
<input type=text name="name">
<input type=text name="message">
<input type=button name="sendmail" value="Send It" onClick="">
Problem is it pops up an external client, or does not work at all.
document.emailForm.action='mailto:' + '<myemailaddy>' + '?SUBJECT=' + 'Comment';
document.emailForm.value=name.value + ' ' + comment.value;

Ok, thanks. Not my server though. It's a geocities site.

Acturally, you can do an e-mail with geocities. Geocities has an add-on for your website that will take info from a form and e-mail it to your Yahoo! account.
Check this link out for more information:
Also, if that doesn't bring you to it, go to Geocities, logon. Then on the main geocities page find the Add-Ons link in the center of the page. It is hard to see. Then it is on the left side - Communications > Email forms. There is also a lot of other stuff to play with. Just read the Yahoo! faq on it or whatnot, and you shouldn't have any problems. I know someone who did this for their Geocities site in the past, so I know it works. If you have any more problems that you can't find on the Geocities FAQ, etc., feel free to ask here and I'll try to answer it for you. Good luck and have fun!

Tripod (www.tripod.com) allows you to upload your own Perl scripts once you get an account. I'm not sure if they impose any restrictions, but from what I can tell they allow you to create a script to send mail. This has an obvious advantage to packaged components included in other free web site hosting sites: You will know exactly how it works and can improve on it later. Perl is easy to learn (at least I thought it was) and can be used for a variety of applications. Hope this helps!
