E-mail on Submit, not Page Load (vbscript)

I'm using the below code to to send e-mails and it works fine except it sends when I load the page and I really need it to send it when users click the submit button.  I tried the mailto: process in the form action, but my users don't have e-mail on their desktops and that looks for a default e-mail program to send the e-mail so it's not a solution.  Any help would be appreciated.

Dim sName, sEmail, sMessage
Dim oCdoMail, oCdoConf, sConfURL

sName = "DoNotReply@test.com"

sMessage = "An Request is awaiting your review."

Set oCdoMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set oCdoConf = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

sConfURL = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"

with oCdoConf
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "sendusing") = 2
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserver") = "smtp.mail.fedex.com"
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserverport") = 25
	.Fields.Update
end with

with oCdoMail
	.From = sName
	.To = "test@test.com"
	.Subject = "Test"
	.TextBody = sMessage
	.HTMLBody = sMessage
	.Configuration = oCdoConf
	.Send
end with

Set oCdoConf = Nothing
Set oCdoMail = Nothing

in your html for the page, create a button like this:

<input type="submit" name="email" value="Send Email" />

and now change your server side code to:

if Request.Form("email") = "Send Email" then
Dim sName, sEmail, sMessage
Dim oCdoMail, oCdoConf, sConfURL

sName = "DoNotReply@test.com"

sMessage = "An Request is awaiting your review."

Set oCdoMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set oCdoConf = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

sConfURL = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"

with oCdoConf
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "sendusing") = 2
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserver") = "smtp.mail.fedex.com"
	.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserverport") = 25
	.Fields.Update
end with

with oCdoMail
	.From = sName
	.To = "test@test.com"
	.Subject = "Test"
	.TextBody = sMessage
	.HTMLBody = sMessage
	.Configuration = oCdoConf
	.Send
end with

Set oCdoConf = Nothing
Set oCdoMail = Nothing
end if

now the email should only send when the button is clicked!
