    Collect form data and send via email

    Let me first say that I do not know any of the languages except HTML. But I make out pretty good copying and pasting a script and modifying it to work for me.

    I want to create a form to collect input data and mail it to myself.

    It appears there are many ways to do it: mailto, Formmail, PHP, CGI, Pearl, ASP and probably others. I do not need to validate the input, just send whatever they fill in the form.

    Most of the tutorials mention certain files need to go in the server cgi bin. I don't know anything about server side files so I also need to know where to put everything.

    I have the form so what would you recommend for the rest of the coding?

    Thanks
