You could use a server side email. Flash would send the info to a server side script which would in turn send the email. PHP, ASP, and PERL are a few that will allow it. Here is a tutorial using PHP

I can sell you an Advanced Contact Script that includes fully working Form that can submit any info to any e-mail you want and a reply e-mail to the person who is filling out the application. Fully customized to your liking (e.g. color, animation, style, and design plus any amount of information you what to be filled out) for very cheap. Great deal! Consider it. Or you can spend countless hours trying to figure out complicated php and actionscript, when you are losing customers and or money that you could be making off of this advanced script, and I will even install it for free and give you unlimited technical support for FREE! Think about it the choice is simple.

Hi there, I hope this will help. It works with PHP.
I have add the button script and the php code to be save aswell and up loaded to your server. :)

-------------------

on (release) {
loadVariables("email.php",'POST');
javascript('alert("Thank you for contacting us.");');
}


-------------------

<!-- This is the PHP code, so save it in a txt editor as emil.php -->


<?php
$name = $_POST['Name'];
$email = $_POST['Email'];
$message = $_POST['Message'];

$name = stripslashes($name);
$email = stripslashes($email);
$message = stripslashes($message);

$rec_email = "[email protected]";
$subject = "Online form submission";

$msg_body .= "Name: $name\n\n";
$msg_body .= "E-Mail: $email\n\n";
$msg_body .= "Comments: $message\n\n";
mail($rec_email, $subject, $msg_body);
?>
