You can either use a server side language such as PHP. Or simply set the forms action to your email address.

<form method="POST" action="youremail@email.com">

That would open a new email in their default client though.

Hmm Im presuming the free webhosting sites dont let you use stuff like php.

I have a geocities website. I was just going to create a page on it and then use a link to redirect to the correct page which I will have this Form on.

For the form, i dont like the idea that using the post to my email, that to do so, the person posting would have to get there email client opened to send it.

PHP does sound the better option

Oh wait, on my geocities site, i found a forum i used before.
its got something called Response-O-Matic service.
I tried it, filled in theform and it mailed the results back 2me
