    Question email post method

    first of all, i'm new. i'm adding an email button to a site that i'm working on using the "mailto:etc. " method. when the page is viewed the button activates outlook xprss (evil). that just seems kind of cheezy to me that the user would have to go thru another program just to contact the business or they may even have to set up their outlook. (never works for me.)
    i know that there are some mail scripts that can be used but i haven't persued them because they sound a little above my current understanding of web development. are there any other easy options aside from the "mailto" method? please share the knowledge and love.

    The only other way to send email (apart from the mailto) is to use a server-side language to do so. Take a look at http://www.webdevfaqs.com/php.php#mailer if your server supports PHP.

    I reject your reality and substitute it with my own!
