frontpage and custom from email address

P: 55
there is a website i was asked to look at ( i have no clue why as i have never done much web development expecially with frontpage extensions).

they want to setup a form on the page that will automatically allow users to subscribe to a listserv for updates.

listserv guys said it will pull the email address out of the email header and the body needs to contain Subscribe <list name> <name of the person requesting>

they already have multiple sites on this server that can send email to an email address but it all comes from one specific email address, which is the one setup in the smtp mail server.

so is there a way to create a form that has a name and email field and when it sends the email it will appear as it came from the email address someone typed into the field?

or should the listserv company provide some html code that will do something similar?

thanks for your help

Nothing can be done in html to do this. The browser will work through the user's email program. Whatever the email program sends is what will be seen. The browser has no control over that.
