The current web-host for one of my sites doesn't use Front Page 98 extensions, and I need a simple form that records:

Name
Email address
Comments

The has a submit button that sends the response in a line-by-line, or "bulleted list" format to my e-mail address (ie myaddress@somewhere.com).

I think you really should be looking at ASP.  This allows you to store information on a database on the server as well as having many other excellent features.

You can get free hosting with ASP support at http://ewebcity.com and you can learn about ASP at http://learnasp.com

It requires some study and practice but ASP really is an excellent technology offering a variety of excellent and powerful features.

Hope this helps

if your website have sendmail capablity (most uf unix hosts have) this is very simple:

- Create your form
- In the "Form Properties" window, select "Send to Other" and Select "Custom ISAPI,NSAPI,CGI or ASP Script"
- Press to the "Options" button"
Fill these fields like this:
- for Action field
mailto:yourmail@yourdomain
- for Method field
POST
- for Encoding Type field
text/plain

if you save this page to your local pc. peobably FP will warn you for this form. Ignore this warning, this is because your PC dont have sendmail capability.

I'm sory, in my previous comment you dont need sendmail cabable server. this method sends you an email message using user's mail software.

For using server sendmail cabability, you shoul do like this:

- Create your form
- In the "Form Properties" window, select "Send to" and write your e-mail address to "Email Address" field.(clear any 'File Name' fields if exist)
- Press to the "Options" button"
- clear any 'File Name' fields if exist on 'File Results' tab
- Select 'Email Results' tab
- write your e-mail address to apropriate field
- Select "Formatted Text" for e-mail format field

That's all, save your page.

if you save this page to your local pc. peobably FP will warn you for this form. Ignore this warning, this is because your PC dont have sendmail capability.

Do it the easy way!!

Go to http://www.response-o-matic.com

You can specifiy what you want and the code is generated for you to insert into your HTML code (of Frontpage).

Responses are routed to up to 2 e-mail addresses and a "Thank You" is sent to the respondee.

And its free.
