Anyway, there is also another, basic reason why your form is not working: the "Submit" button is outside the form area. Delete the submit button, strech the form area down, then re-build your submit button.

The only reliable way to have the info in your mail is to use a script. The most easy way is described in Andy's tutorial: http://netisopen.com/computer/web/webpagestuff.html
