You need to load the form data fields into a LoadVar and then send them to a email script page such as php, asp, cfm etc.  This script page willl actually send the email.  I have provided the script for the button and the script in php.

Hope this helps.
//--------------- FLASH AS2 CODE ------------------//

//When the user clicks submit do the following

send_btn.onRelease = function ()

{

     //Create a new instance of the LoadVars class

     var _loc3 = new LoadVars();

     //If the loading of the form variables is successful to the following

     _loc3.onLoad = function (success)

     {

         if (success)

         {

            //success code here

         }

         //If not then do this

         else

         {

	//handle error code here

         }

      };

      

        var _loc2 = new LoadVars();

        //Load the value of the form fields

        _loc2.fullname = name_txt.text;

        _loc2.email = email_txt.text;

        

        //send the values to a email script

        _loc2.sendAndLoad("location of email script", _loc3, "POST");

};
 

// ------------- PHP EMAIL ACTION PAGE ---------------

<?php
 

$visitor = $_POST['name_txt']; 

$visitormail = $_POST['email_txt']; 
 

$todayis = date("l, F j, Y, g:i a") ;
 

$subject = "Email Subscription Request"; 
 

$message = "your message. \n

Name: $visitor\n

Email: $visitormail \n

Sent: $todayis \n

";
 

$from = "From: $visitormail\r\n";
 

mail("email address", $subject, $message, $from);
 

?>

if you don't want the backend option you can also use a mailto which will open the users default mail client i.e. outlook

on (release) {
mailto:addy@whereever.com?subject=whatever?body=whatever
}
