cgi submit and parse returned page Can't Post

well I did a search to see if I could do this, and I couldn't find any info, so I'll see what all you epxerts know:

OK I have a form embedded into a cgi script, when I call the cgi I have a query string which automatically fills in the form elements and I have <body onLoad> set to submit the form. So it works it submits the data immediately and loads the action URL of the form with no problem.

But here is where it gets tricky, the action URL is not on my server, and I want to get the html page that is loaded, to save to a file, but don't know if it is possible??

In laymans terms say i wrote a cgi script to automatically log into my hotmail/yahoo account, can I also get that same cgi to grab the html that would be returned on my screen and save to a file??
