use this: <form method="post" action=mailto:youremail at email.com> and have your elements. When they hit submit, it will prompt them to be extremely suspicious about the form and do you want to submit it anyway. If they say yes, their default mail client will open, send an email containing all the form-elements names and their values, and immediately close. You will recieve it and will be able to easily read what the user submitted. However, this only works if they are using a POP3 mail client. Also, that "be suspicious cuz they're out to get you" message is a bit unnerving to novice surfers. You don't even need to have an "email address" field, because you can just look at the "from" line. This method is an extreme problem with people who want to sign up, but are at a library computer.
