Server side email.

Howdy All, I am in the process of developing a web site with some forms on it.  Is there an easy way to have the server email a form to me when the customer clicks submit?  I DO NOT WANT it emailed from the customer's PC I want my server to email me the data from the form.  My web server is running win2k and IIS and here is the link to the page I want to mail.

http://216.201.187.105/index_contact.html

If custom server side scripts are necessary to accomplish this I would prefer they are vbscript using ASP or ASP.NET.  

Thanks, E

An extension of Neil's post, this is somewhat of a tutorial for sending the form's information through email using ASP:

For your page you can convert your page name to: index_contact.asp and put the following code at the top of the page:

<% if Request.Form <> "" Then
      msgbody = ""                           
      msgbody = msgbody & "this is a feedback email from " & Request("textfield") & vbcrlf
      msgbody = msgbody & "Here is the message:" & Request("textarea") & vbcrlf
            Set objCDOMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
            objCDOMail.From = Request("textfield") & "<" & Request("textfield4") & ">"
            objCDOMail.To = "youremail@yourdomain.com"
            objCDOMail.Subject = "Feedback message"
            objCDOMail.Body = msgbody
            objCDOMail.BodyFormat = 1 ' CdoBodyFormatHTML
            objCDOMail.MailFormat = 0 ' CdoMailFormatMime
            objCDOMail.Importance = 2 '(0=Low, 1=Normal, 2=High)
            objCDOMail.Send
        set objCDOMail = nothing
End if%>

This is a sample code that should work with your listed page, please feel free to ask any further question

okay I try izzeddeen's solution and end up with "The page cannot be displayed" and no mail.  Not sure if something needs to be configured on my IIS site or if there is something wrong with the script.  I also tried splitting it up into 2 pages, my code on the 1st page and the script on the second (added the second page to the action of the 1st page's form).

Going to look through the links posted now.

Thanks all, going to split the points between Izze and Neal.  Neal's link gave lead me down the track to finding out my SMTP services were not installed for IIS and will provide the info I need to build on Izze's snippet.  Izze gave me a quick snippet that works (of course the links pointed to pretty much the same snippet but code is always appreciated).

Thanks Again, E
