The reason forms are so difficult to most people is that they require processing by a hosting provider as the programs necessary to process a form and send an email requires a dynamic language to take the submitted form info, create an email document, and use a mail server to send it. This is something that is not available on your computer or through your web pages but is external.
There are web sites that specialize in taking forms and sending emails. These 3rd party sites offer very simple form builders that create everything you need to use to get the form to them and they send you the email results using their server software and their server mail server program
