Detecting IP and sending to webmaster

I run a local website and often I get death threats and unnecessary messages which constitute notification of the ISP. I would like to know how I can set a cookie when the guestbook is signed (if necessary), somehow find the IP, and send the name entered in the "Name" field with the IP of the visitor to my email. I would really like just a long bit of code that would do this that I can put in the page used for signing. Please help, this is urgent. I'm giving all of my points to whoever can do this.
Thanks,
SuperMario

It is run on Angelfire (I believe they allow CGI?)

How are the threats being passed to you?  Are they being posted into a guestbook or sent to you as eMail?

Both, actually. They are more prevalent in the guestbook.

Well, if the problem is eMail you should know where it came from but you can certainly look at the headers and get a pretty good idea.  

In the guestbook, it would seem unlikely that the guistbook does not record ip-addresses.  If it is written in perl as most of them are then you just need to look at and record the environment variable:
REMOTE_ADDR

If this I am missing something then please post the url of the page so we can understand your problem a little better.
