in thread passing CGI form parameters via HTML email

Sorry, I did not realize anything in all caps was unwelcome form. Please forgive me. I shall respond to your questions in order.

When I invoke CGI script 1 via server side HTML, I get the desired and expected output: e.g.
$subject is: {input from HTML form}
$comments is: {other input from HTML form} other words, everything works fine.

When I invoke CGI script 1 via responding to the HTML email which is created by CGI script 2, and thence sent to my AOL client side email account, I get: e.g.

$subject is: {all blank}
$comments is: {all blank}
.......see, I'm expecting the same output results, as the inputs provided for subject and comments are the same (instead I get blanks)

I got the idea to try this after my car was serviced and the service provider sent an email to my AOL email account that contains a satisfaction survey embedded in the body of the AOL email message. Since the service provider's survey worked, I'm inclined to believe the problem is with my code, not the security features on my email client. I hope this gives you a better feel for the problem. If anything still isn't clear, I'm happy to provide more information. Thank you for your patience.
