Web form to Access Database that sends an email for each new entry

I made a form using Frontpage 2003 that takes the contents of the form and puts it in an Access database on our server using Frontpage extensions. Simple stuff. That part works great.

What I want it to do is have an email sent to one specific address each time a new table record is entered into the database. This is all internal stuff, if that makes a difference. It's just for notification to the person that a new entry has been put into the database.

I figured this all out about six years ago at a previous job, and since then I have completely forgotten how I made it work! I also have Dreamweaver CS3, and can use either one for the solution. Seems like I remember having to put something within Access to make it work, but I just forgot the specifics. I'm using Access 2007.

I didn't think about that one. I'll give it a try when I get back to work on Monday, and I'll let you know. Thanks!
