That is simple, you create a form with the action to the processing page, in the processing page you make sure that everything is filled in accordingly and then either use the php mail function or some SMTP class that could be found on the web.

Well, yes you could either PHP or some other programming language. I would recommend PHP because you will be able to find a lot more help on it since a lot of people know it.

You can start off with http://w3schools.com/ and start from there, or just get an already made code and upload it on your server. Just make sure that your server supports PHP.

I could code it for you... tell me what kind of fields you desire and I will do it for you... Or do you want it exactly as the example you gave?

Here is a tutorial for creating a contact form in PHP, it's quite easy: http://www.kirupa.com/web/php_contact_form.htm

This may also help you: http://gog.is/php,contact,form,tutorial

Even for someone who doesn't know it, it should only take 20 min, 30 min tops to make something like that.

The fields would just be Name, E-mail Address, and Message but let me first try and see if i can get the premade code from the site linked by PolishHurricane to work.

Thanks.
