    I want to add a page to my website for customers to send a request for an estimate. I have tried to do a search that explains the html code ... and I can pretty much get that part. My question is ... doesn't there have to be some way for the info to get to your email client or program? How does the submitted info find its way to me?

    You're looking for a simple sendmail script that will send form results to your email address. The company hosting your site most likely has a sendmail CGI script already on your server. You just need to put a few lines of code inside your form tags in the source code of your web page to talk to the server script. The host company probably has these tags published in the technical help section of their site – look for help in setting up forms.
