    Lots of free and easy to customise XHTML code out there to add a contact form. You don't need to play with jquery. Maybe this link will inspire you to have a go yourself. The benefit is that you can tailor it to your needs and wont have to rely on anyone else. (">

    I use coffee cup forms to create a script locally. Works a treat.

    Export it, then it creates the code to embed in your page as well as the required php files.

    Unless you're filtering mails to different departments sales/returns/tech help etc you might as well just put your mail address up?

    Make sure whatever you choose you include a Captcha type system or you will end up getting spammed to fuck.

    Can only talk from my experience but a Captcha cuts the numbers of enquires.

    I found if you force correctly filled in fields like email address and name you can do without it.

    I dunno. I used to get a lot where they analyse the form and work out the fields for email address, comment etc. you can be clever about it though to mitigate risk. One trick I used was a JavaScript based counter that basically meant that someone had to be on the page for 5 seconds before the submit button was made active. Gets rid of a lot of bot based crap and most people will take a lot longer than 5 seconds to complete a form.
