Dont know if this will help you but I needed a something similar and I went on a javascript website and found one very close and with a bit of playying around I got what I wanted.

I got mine from here. www.javascriptkit.com/

a mate sent me this code to edit:

Code:
<form action="http://www.fourfourtwo.net/myscript/formmail.cgi" method="post">
<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Feedback Form">
<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="my@mine.net">
<input type=hidden name="redirect" value="http://www.fourfourtwo.net/myscript/done.html">
i understand where to input the relevant email and that the redirect value will be a conformation page but whats the 'form action' address meant to be?

'Form action' is what the form is supposed to do when you click submit. In the snippet your friend sent you the form is supposed to be processed by a CGI script that actually generates/sends out the email. HTML cannot generate email so you need to rely on cgi/php/asp.. your flavor..
If your host supports PHP I would take Dirk up on his offer

To find out if your hoster supports php (if not obvious in the control panel)
Create a text file called info.php and in that file add:
Code:
<? phpinfo(); ?>
and upload to your www or public_html directory and then call that file from a browser.
If you see a heap of info on a blue background about php and mysql then your hoster supports php.
If you only see
Code:
<? phpinfo(); ?>
then no your hoster does not.
