At Matt's Script Archive is a perl script called formmail.cgi. You can use
this to process the form data and email it to you. However, your hosting
service must allow you to configure this otherwise you may be at a dead end.
Installation and configuration is quite simple. However, if the email
address to which the registration is submitted is in the HTML page, then you
haven't hidden the email address and it would be open for harvesting. Some
hosting services will provide you access to their formmail scripts but you
must put your email address within your HTML form to make it work which
opens it up for harvesting.

HTH,

Jules

<<Does your hosting service support any server side languages such as PHP or
Perl?>>

PHP is not supported. Perl is, but I have no understanding of its use. Also,
this is a FrontPage web, so I have to be mindful of some of the FrontPage
exclusive issues.

Can anyone suggest a link where I could learn about techniques to make
online registration and subscription forms both safe from autospammers and
accessible to all human users? The current host of the web site that needs
this enhancement does not support active server pages, so .asp techniques
won't be helpful.
