What is a proven contemporary replacement for formmail.pl?

I am about to drag some websites created in 1997 into 2008. These websites use formmail.pl to capture information from input forms and email it off to someone.
After I strip all of the Claris Homepage tags out of the HTML (!), I'll need something to capture the information, write it to a file, and periodically email that file. The host computer is an Intel Xserve managed by me, and is running OS X Server 10.5.3, so I have Apache, Perl, MySQL, and PHP at my disposal. The pages are simple HTML, but can be converted to PHP if necessary.
OSS is preferred, but I will pay for a solution. I'm mostly an interface/admin guy, so writing my own Perl script just ain't gonna happen. I'm looking for a plug, tweak, and play solution.
