If your host doesn't support FP extensions then your only alternative
is to install a CGI script to handle your form input. The most basic/
popular script that I know of is FormMail which you can get here:

A couple of points:

1. If you don't have any experience with CGI then you have a small
learning curve to overcome. Having said this, FormMail is a very
good introduction to CGI.

2. If you're on an NT server then be sure to read the notes about
"other operating systems".

3. It presumes you know how to set up an HTML form to send the input.

Good luck!
