If you are looking for a simple way of submitting an email of the form details you could try using this <form> tag:
<FORM ENCTYPE="text/plain" NAME="FormName" METHOD="POST" ACTION="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Email from Form">
But this will just create an email (if memory serves me correctly) in the persons mail client (assuming they have one, and are not using a web based one) with the details that they have entered, they will still have to send it themselves.
Some sort of cgi/asp script is the best for this sort of thing as the above assumes that the user:
1. check your path to perl at the very top
2. it does work on non-unix, but it took us a while to get it too! now we are on unix and it works fine.
3. make sure your permissions are correct
4. check the big nose bird forums. not much support from the designers, but lots of self-support with install/config problems.
once you have got a couple of perl scripts working, it all gets much easier from there on..
I have downloaded the birdcast file and there is a txt where I must change some things I think there is my problem and I can see even webmasterworld has a email a freind.
