You could use a little Active Server Pages scripting with CDONTS ...
submit the form to an Active Server Page ...
strFrom=Request.Form("[field in form holding the sender's name/email
!!! NB !!! strip spaces - a CDONTS quirk means you cannot have any
spaces in the name (strFrom)
strTo=Request.Form("[destination email address]")
strSubject = "[type in your subject matter]"
strBody="[body of message]" & vbCrLf
strBody=strBody & [more ...]
lngImportance = "1"
Set myCDONTSMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
Set myCDONTSMail = Nothing
