    Default Email via web from a drop down list

    I am looking for a script that will display a list of available names to choose from. The visitor will select a name, type in the message and click send. I have ASPEmail component installed on my NT4 (SPK6a, Option Pack4) webserver. I would also like to limit the text field to a certain amount of characters.<BR><BR>I would assume that the actual name/email list will be hidden with the asp script or maybe a way to call a Access database. I have seen tons of form to email ideas but nothing like this.<BR><BR>Any help is appreciated.<BR><BR>Thank you.<BR>Qsack
