    Note: response takes for granted this is done using ASP.

    Suggestion #1:

    If you don't have SMTP or anything loaded on that server, I'm a big fan of JMail by http://www.dimac.net/

    1. Just take your form fields and request them into ASP variables.

    2. Use JMail's variables and create your message.

    3. Specify your SMTP server's options.

    4. Send your message.

    Here's a clip of some code I used to send me an email when a particular database record is updated from one of my web sites:

    Dim msg ' As JMail Message Object
    Set msg = Server.CreateObject("JMail.Message")
    msg.From = strAuthName
    msg.FromName = strFullName
    msg.AddRecipient strWebMasterEmail
    msg.Subject = "Database Updated"
    msg.AppendHTML ("Updated database.")
    msg.Send ("wpsmail1")
    Set msg = Nothing
    Suggestion #2:

    Why not pump everything into a Access/mySQL/SQL/Postgres/whatever database? That's nice, easy to access, and no interaction required. You can still use JMail/SMTP/Sendmail to shoot the customer an email after the database has been updated as a "follow-up"...

    Thanks and good luck!
