Yeah, but say you go to www.somecompany.net and you see an email address to contact the company, would you rather:
* Fill out a form.
* Give the company your email and have a form sent to you?
* Send an email from your email client. << This one.

OK. You go to a site and see those options....

The latter requires you reading /cut n pasting an email address.  You HAVE ABSOLUTLEY NO idea how the information is going to come through. They think 'god I have to type this myself'.

Bottom line is there has to be some interaction between you better to have a link saying register that links to a form or recieve registration form via e-mail....

the reason that registartion forms are on-line is that you have control and the visitor doesn't have to do too much.  What you think they will like is IMO what they don't want. People are lazy they want to do as little work to get the maximum benefit - to get what you want you have to make sure its easy for them to do AND that you can use what they give. Just sending an e-mail will not give you that unless you have scripted A.I. in php.
