    I used some of the ones you mentioned here, thanks for providing the list :). However, I found out than my forms were being submitted through the form providers website. I don’t feel comfortable about having my visitors details sent to other websites before I get the email. Anyway, after a few days of looking around I ended up using the form available at http://www.freecontactform.com I personally think it’s the easiest one to use. Just thought I would come back and share this with you guys.
    Thanks again. Samo
