Needing a automated email entry form Can't Post

I'm trying to figure out how to setup an automated email address entry form that I can place in the splash page of a site. What I want it to do is let users into the site once they enter their email address and click submit. I want to be able to compile a list of who's coming in and get a hold of them when we've made updates to the site.

I don't have a clue as to what to do. I know that I do have a cgi bin available with my webhost account.

I hope you can help. Thanks! -enrique

Any decent form processor can be modified with some small changes to do this. One that I am familiar with is BNBForm. It comes with a cgi script that could update a flat file database to store the email address....

just a note, what your trying to do will probably just supply you with a lot of fake emails, it's happened to me.

I know. The only hope that this will workout fairly well is that the market that will be coming to this site is an already established niche of clients that are beginning to transition into electronic based communications over snail mail.

What did you use to do this before? Thanks a bunch! Enrique

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

PS - If you'd like to take a look at what I'm doing this for go to this url: http://www.enriquemontiel.com/stevefraser/index.html

We have a domain registered for the actual site but won't put it up until a little later this week. Right now it's under my domain.

Thanks again for everyone's help. I offered to make this site as a gift to someone I owe a lot to.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
