Hey everyone,

I'm brand new to the forum, and i'm hoping this question hasn't already been answered. If it has please point me in the right direction.

I'm coding a website for a YouTube Channel, very basic layout and design.

I want to have a form a new user can fill out to be added to a newsletter mailing list.

BUT...

I want the user info (name, email etc) to be sent to an email address for me to keep track of when sending the newsletter out so I can keep the sending list updated.

In other words I want to keep a list of people who want the newsletter.

The website I wrote is in HTML & CSS and would like to keep it to those languages

Is this possible without php?

Perhaps a form is not necessary for this? One advantage with forms is that the user doesn't need an email account in order to send a message. But in this case the users need email accounts later on anyway, so you can send the newsletters to them. So why not just let them email you their subsbription requests (perhaps with "subscribe" as the subject line) the traditional way, using their own email accounts?
