Looking for email feedback form

Looking for email feedback form Can't Post

We are helping a non profit group that lobbies in our state for children's causes. They want to have on their website an easy way for citizens to send state representatives a pre-written email letter which would urge that rep to support specific legislation.

The set-up strikes me as somewhat complex, so perhaps someone can point us in the right direction:

[1] The visitor would select the name of the representative from a long list, perhaps for example through a radio button or check box (let's say there are 100 names: 50 counties with 2 reps each);

They click "Next"

[2] The person would next indicate which support letter is to be sent to that rep -- again, let's say there are 4 possible choices -- perhaps by clicking a box next to the one they want;

They click "Next"

[3] The data from #1 would go into a form mail "To:" field; the data from #2 would make up the body of the message;

[4] The form is now returned to their screen with the above filled in. All they have to do is enter their name to the "From:" field and add their own contact info, and hit send.

[5] A copy goes to the legislator and the person's contact info is saved for the non-profit's own database.

Does something like this exist? or can it be created?

Thanks for any help...

sure it can be created, pieces of that are in every
guestbook or here in the post preview.

You need one Form on "next" the first script wich creates the second Form and store the selected Data in it
on next the second script creates the Mail Form and fills out the appropiates Data from 1 and 2
on submit the 3rd script mails then the data to the legislator (perhaps acopy to the user) and stores the given contact in the Database and creates the
we thank you Form

so you need 1 HTML FORM and 3 scripts which generate the other forms
