We have a Sharepoint 2007 server. We have a form that we want to have users be able to fill out and email someone. Is Infopath the only option? Does the user that fills out the form have to have Infopath installed?

you can also create list form , but you are restricted with only few fields.
The infopath is easiest method to create the form. you can design as browser enabled & publish the infopath form then you use page viewer webpart to show that in your website.

By designing in Browser enabled infopath form, the client doesnt required the infopath to be installed.

if you have sharepoint 2007 (in other words, MOSS 2007 and not wss 3.0), then the user does not have to have infopath.  MOSS 2007 includes something that acts like infopath forms server.

see the section called browser-based forms.

You have many options , like creating a webpart with Usercontrol,
creating an aspx page and intergarting it to your sharepoint ,
designing an infopath form and publishing it to your sharepoint,
using a data view webpart in sharepoint designer.

how ever you design a form the data will be stored in list and through sharepoint Designer workflow you  can send an email

Thanks guys.. So it is for internal use. It will be a form that we would love to be able to collect data. It will be an Employee Recognition Form that you can recognize and employee for doing something good. Any ideas?

lists collect data
infopath forms with MOSS collect data

either of those would be easy solutions.
