    you need HTML and CGI reference material!

     FORM name="ccform" method="POST" [B]action[/B]="server-script-name?p1=x,p2=y..." ...
    whatever is in the action parm (eg server-script-name) executes on your web server machine.

    this would try to popup an email client on the web server (and fail) which is not
    what you want :(

    the CGI server-script-name?p1=x,p2=y,... would be seen on the web server,
    and need to interface with an SMTP interface script, process your p1,p2,... parms, and send the email directly to the smtpd also running on the web server. Google for a SMTP script in your preferred scripting language
