However many do provide a "built-in" form-to-email CGI that their users can
make use of - it's worth checking to see if one is provided.

And then there are free "remotely-hosted" form-to-email CGIs out there,
which one can use without having to have access to your own CGI-BIN.  One
excellent source of these is at the CGI Resource Index, at
