Appleshare IP 6.3-Form Handling

I'm currently running an Appleshare IP 6.3 server that's hosting my web site.  The site is created in Adobe Go Live 5.

I've created a form on this site that I beleive needs to be processed by a cgi script.  My goal is to have this simple form processed and then e-mailed to myself.

I need some basic direction assistance.  So far, I seem to have trouble figuring out what software to use (Applescript, Perl/CGI).  I'm not getting much help from Apple.  What I really seem to be stuck with, is locating the outgoing mail application within AppleShare IP.  Apple seems to have hid this little bugger.  It seems that without knowing where this app is, a cgi won't know how to "send" out any e-mail.

ANY input would be greatly appreciated.  If you know how to make this work, please help.

The AppleShareIP mail server should have been installed by default with AppleShareIP. The actual mail server application should be named "AppleShare IP Mail Server" and be located in the Extensions folder of the System Folder. To manage it (Start, Stop, configure, etc,..), use the "Mac OS Server Admin" application either locally or remotely, and it should be located in the "AppleShare IP 6.3" folder in a folder called "Mac OS Server Admin". For specific information on configuring or managing this mail server, use the documentation contained in the "AppleShare IP 6.3" folder or go to:

Apple just provides the software and the support for that software. When we start adding scripts and such in it's no longer their problem because they cant possibly support all the wacky things we, as users, do with extra software.

That being said have a look at:

Macnetworks:  Yes, I am also looking for mail server info.  It appears that AppleShare IP's mail server app (the one you direct the cgi towards) is hard to isolate.  I'm starting to wonder if I need to consider a different server.
Thanks for your investigation.
