there's no excuse to rely on the client to handle forms in this day and age. write a mailing script in whatever language your host does support.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I have windows hosting, so I could write something in C# as an example (That's what I use for desktop development).
I guess my question though would be how to do that... I know it's broad, but I've never done anything like that. Would I create the UI in the HTML document and then on Send button click somehow use the C# code? I'm very intrigued by your post, but I honestly don't understand how this would be accomplished. Like I said, I very infrequently do web work, so while sending an e-mail is no problem on the desktop, I am unsure of how to do that through an HTML page.
Thanks Again everyone for your help.

you'd do exactly the same as you would a PHP-based form. Have the HTML form POST to the server side script, and figure out how to read that POSTed data in the language of your choosing and process it from there.
