embed a form in an emailby malaga (Pilgrim)

malaga has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm having trouble finding information on the following: I need to embed a form in an html email. When the recipient receives the email, they should be able to fill in and submit the form right from their inbox. i'm able to make it work with a simple form that gets sent to a mailto: address - it simply brings up an email with the To, From and Subject filled in, but i can't make it work when sending to a cgi script on a remote server by referencing the entire url to the script - I get an error that the file can't be found and the error references my local temporary internet file cache.
1. Is this even possible?
2. What's the trick?
