I just cut 'n' pasted this from a fairly hefty script, so apologies if I
missed something vital...


if ($submit){
while (list($key,$val) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS)){
	$message .= "$key: $val\n";
	// want to see it?
	print ("$key: $val<br>");
$email_headers = "From: $email\n";
$email_subject = "$main_path " . $PHP_SELF . " form";
@mail($your_email_addr, $email_subject, $message, $email_headers);

if ($i_want_a_copy){
	@mail($email, $email_subject, $message, $email_headers);

print ("<form action=\"$PHP_SELF\" method=\"POST\">");
print ("<table>\n");
print ("<tr><td>Email: </td><td><input type=\"Text\" name=\"email\"
print ("<tr><td>How did hear about us?</td><td><input type=\"Text\"
name=\"hear_about_us\" value=\"$hear_about_us\"></td></tr>\n");
print ("<tr><td>Would you like to receive a copy of the
email?</td><td><input type=\"Checkbox\" name=\"i_want_a_copy\"
print ("<tr><td>&nbsp;</td><td><input name=\"submit\" type=\"Submit\"
print ("</table>");
print ("</form>");
