fwiw, i know this isn't a CGI solution, but why not add a value to the 
'select' option?  such as:

<select name="foo" ...>
	<option value="bmonchka at hotmail.com">-Select-</option>
	<option value="biff at buffy.com">biff at buffy.com</a>
	<option value="milk at toast.com">milk at toast.com</a>

after all, you *are* using values in your option tags, right?
