Who is your web host, what level of hosting account do you have with them and do they allow you to run your own CGI or PHP scripts ?
Perhaps they offer you their own CGI mailer, since most web hosts seem to these days.
Have you looked at the NetObjects services you get for free as a registered user ?
They offer page hit counters, form to email, online polls and so on for certain versions of NOF.

Setting up the FormMail script seems far harder to most people than it actually is. I think many people stare a large block of Perl code in the face and come to the rapid conclusion that they can't do it. It's a shame reaaly, because in most cases, all you need to do is change three or four lines of the script with your own and your hosts details and add the relevant hidden form fields onto your web form and that's it.
