    Exclamation Forms question

    Hi - I have made a question/comment form for my website. The only problem is when I click on SUBMIT, it just opens a mailto: window. How can I make it just send the info in the fields to my email box?

    Here's the page if you want to try first-hand:

    Thanks, Grant

    You are using a "mailto:someone@somewhere.net". There is no way to keep the Outlook box from coming up when you use this. If you want this to just be sent to your email, then you should get a CGI or other server-side script. There are free ones all over the web. If your server doesn't support server-side scripting, you can have it hosted for FREE!

    It's a good idea to do it server-side as Zach suggested because AOL browsers don't work with the form/mailto: thing either.
