FP98: Can't get email working on form responses!

I'm using FrontPage98.  Great program so far.  But I can't get email working.  I'm using both the personal server that came with FrontPage and also Internet Information Server on a NT 4.0 server.  If someone submits a form, I want to have the response emailed to me.  I got it to save to a file correctly, but email doesn't seem to work.  The server (both of them) keeps giving me (as a user browing the web site) an error.  What steps do I have to take to ensure that email will work (on the FrontPage end of things)?

Looking forward to your responses.

Thanx.
