Email Autoresponder from Form

My client wants to automatically send an email to any surfer who fills out and submits a form.

The page is located at:
http://www.netafim-usa.com/feedback.htm

I am using the formmail script from Matt's script archive.

I have defined
<form method="POST" action="formmail/formmail.cgi">
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="netafim@netafim-usa.com">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Netafim Irrigation Reply to Your Request">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.netafim-usa.com/thanks.html">
<input type="hidden" name="Where" value="This was sent from the More Information Request Page"><b>

and

<b>E-mail: </b><input type="text" name="email" value size="35">

My Digiweb.com account allows for an automatic responder if you send email directly, but not from a form.

Is there a CGI or Java script that can do this?

Thanks, April

You can use HTML to send the message directly from the form, but you can't use this form info.
The code is
<script>
function sendMail()
//if the mail is for him:
    document.forms["toSend"].action="'mailto:"+document.forms["toSend"].mail.value+";SUBJECT=Netafim Irrigation     Reply to Your Request'" //Sends him the mail
    document.forms["toSend"].submit()

//if the mail is for you:
    document.forms["toSend"].action="'mailto:Yourmail@jaja.com;SUBJECT=Netafim Irrigation     Reply to Your Request'" //Sends him the mail
    document.forms["toSend"].submit()
}
</script>
<form name="toSend">

      <input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="netafim@netafim-usa.com">
      <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Netafim Irrigation Reply to Your
      Request">
      <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.netafim-usa.com/thanks.html">
      <input type="hidden" name="Where" value="This was sent from the More
      Information Request Page">
<br>E-mail: </b><input type="text" name="email" value size="35">
</form>

this will ask the user to send the mail, and the send you him mail
