    When you say without installing scripts do you mean without using an out of the box type script, or without using scripting at all?

    I can't use any languages because scripts don't run on my server.

    In that case your only option is to use:
    <form action="mailto:you@email.com">
    but this means revealing your email address to the world, and the emails you get won't be pretty. I suppose there are also probably sites out there that offer contact forms you can use on your website, but this would undoubtedly mean their branding close to the form.

    contact form

    If you don't have a PHP server, you may have better luck getting alternative ideas if you moved this thread to another forum.

    If a server is not supporting any server side scripting, then it may mean that it's high time you start thinking about changing your host.

    Else, many people will probably be ready to offer a contact form from their site, so long you are ready to have their logo somewhere in that contact form.

    After a second thought, I remember that you were asking for a captcha earlier, and that would mean that probably you have php script in your server, may be you are mistaking.

    I don't think there are many free hosts around that allow php scripts, if any to be honest.

    Not a bad solution after all.

    There is also a free mailbox, which could be sent to using only simple form structure, which was good for Contact me solutions.

    Here is the link to it.

    I don't know, if it is still usable.

    Hope that helps!
