Help creating a web form that emails the info

I have created a contacts form.  When they click submit i want the information emailed to an email address.  The code of the form looks likes this:

                    <form name="form1" method="post" action="">
                      <table width="450" border="0" align="center">
                        <tr>
                          <td width="120">Contact Name: </td>
                          <td width="320"><input name="conname" type="text" id="conname" size="50"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Address:</td>
                          <td><input name="conadd" type="text" id="conadd" value="" size="50"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Email:</td>
                          <td><input name="email" type="text" id="email" size="60"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Phone:</td>
                          <td><input name="phone" type="text" id="phone" size="30"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Mobile:</td>
                          <td><input name="phone2" type="text" id="phone2" size="30"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Areas of Interest: </td>
                          <td><table width="390" border="0">
                              <tr>
                                <td class="style4"><div align="center" class="style17">
                                    <input type="checkbox" name="checkbox" value="checkbox">

                              </tr>
                          </table></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td colspan="2"><div align="center">About your Child </div></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Name:</td>
                          <td><input name="conname2" type="text" id="conname2" size="50"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Gender:</td>
                          <td><select name="select">
                              <option>Male</option>
                              <option>Female</option>
                            </select>
                          </td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>Age:</td>
                          <td><input name="phone22" type="text" id="phone22" size="15"></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td>General Information </td>
                          <td><textarea name="textarea" cols="50" rows="3"></textarea></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td colspan="2"><div align="center">
                              <label>
                              <input type="submit" name="Submit2" value="Submit">
                              </label>
                          </div></td>
                        </tr>
                      </table>
                    </form>

In case someone is not giving full code, there's a tutorial for DW and PHP on sending form contents in email here:

You need a server-side language to do this (i.e. ASP, PHP, ASP.NET etc).  Can you tell us which language your server is configured to support?

In that case you'd better wait for Jason to start work, as I'm your man for ASP.... ;-)  Sorry!

There are plenty of form processors out there.  Check out any one of these:  http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Form_Processors/index.html

Good morning.  For the record, I am in L.A. but I don't do early...

Hi andrewl77,

fuzzboxer and klykken both give good advice.  For some weird reason, Dreamweaver does not have an included form-to-email behavior, so you have to go third party.  While there are specific DW extensions out there to do this, they are generally paid extensions and not worth it when you consider how easy it is to do this.

klykken's link shows just how easy it is.  I would attempt to run with that tutorial and post back if you have questions

I have used Klykken's and yep...it was simple!

My only other question is how do i reformat the output into something pretty?

You'll need to learn a little about PHP in order to edit the script to pretty it up:

My first suggestion would be to use better fieldnames...
