Well does your host support PHP ?If so u could use the mail function ,wich doesn't require alot of coding knowledge.Look at w3schools.com => PHP => PHP secure E-mail.

The Master, read what he says next time. He said "save it as an ascii file on the server rather than emailing it". He doesn't want to use e-mail :)But to save things in a file at your server when people clicks at the submit button, you can use this tutorial

ASCII is a text format, you could also save a file in UTF-8 or some other formats.If the server supports PHP5, you can use the file_put_contents function to write to the file all at once. If PHP5 is not installed, then you will need to use a combination of fopen, fwrite, and fclose to create the file, write to it, and close it.

Does UTF-8 and ASCII look different when openend?

They have different character sets. The normal ASCII has 128 characters, and extended ASCII has 256 characters. UTF-8 and unicode in general is needed to display all of the international characters like the Cyrillic, Asian, Persian etc letters. ASCII does not include those characters.
