Can't you define an ACTION as "mailto:pete@appx.com" in a FORM?  Seems like
I have seen this done before.

One thing I've found that is a pain, is making a cgi script for sending
form data to an e-mail address.  I'm thinking a nice idea would be an
addition to the FORM tag that would allow you to define the METHOD as
MAIL, or something like that, and then in the ACTION part, you'd put an
e-mail address to send to.  It would make a routine job much easier. 
Any comments on this, I'd be glad to hear them.
