Lawrence gave you a good example of the kind of JavaScript you would use on
the client end. I have gone a step further and provided an accompanying Perl
emailer script to use with it, to avoid having to encode email addresses on
the client side. You could just use the names of your departments in the
<option> tags and not worry about spam harvesters picking up the addresses.
(I don't know if they do that yet outside of mailto: tags, but I figure if
it's technically possible, it's only a matter of time.)

The script and lots of explanation is at
http://www.shoestringcms.com/personal/codelib/. My contact page on the same
site uses it, so you can view the source of that for the client-side
