Simple Form on Apache

One of my hosts runs Apache (i.e., not Windows). Is there some HTML code for a form that I can drop into a page that will allow filling in several fields (e.g., name, address) and then a Submit to send email to an email address? No need for database usage, even though the host does use PHP.

You need a form handler on the server. Find out what they have. Most likely it's the standard formmail.pl perl script. They can give you directions on how to set up the form.

There's nothing you can 'drop into a page' -- you'll have to set it up.
