Create a Contact Form in Joomla
This tutorial will show you how to create a contact form in Joomla 1.6 / 1.7. We'll use the default Contacts components so no extra extensions are needed.
Step 1: Create the Contact Form
Go to Components > Contacts.
Enter your name in the Name field.
Click the Contact Details tab on the right and enter the information for the contact form. The one absolutely required field is Email - this is where submissions from the form will be sent.
Click Save & Close when you've finished.
Step 2: Modify the Options
In order to improve the display of the contact form, choose Plain under the Display format field. Click Save & Close.
Step 3: Create the Menu Link

Click Select next to Menu Item Type.
Click on Single Contact.
Click Change Contact on the right-hand side.
Click the name of the contact form you just created.
Enter a Menu Title for people to click on.
Click Save & Close and you'll be able to visit the front of your site and your new contact form:
