You can't with HTML, I don't know about JavaScript, but it isn't
something I would consider using something as unreliable as JS for
anyway. I suggest getting a server side script written in Perl, PHP or
ASP to handle the form instead of using FrontPage Extensions.

No, a form can only have one action, you would have to rig your server
side script to deal with both functions. Additionally given that the
paybecheck site using an https connection I would imagine you are
submitting sensitive data - make sure you use an https connection if
you submit data to your FrontPage Extension (or replacement script
that relays the data to paybycheck)

HTML email is a bit like using coloured paper and glitter ink on a CV.
