    Help with Forms

    I have just started learning HTML and would like some advice on forms.
    I have created a form for my website for work but it wants to sent the information via e-mail (by opening outlook) I'm really stuck with it but I really want to get the site finished for the new year.
    here is a link to what I have created

    as you can see it is quite basic....
    can anyone help?

    Thanx
    Alex

    I have moved your thread to the html forum.
    We do have a sticky dealing with this issue:

    You might want to read that first, and let us know if your issue is something different.
    If you want a full explanation of why server side is better than a mailto, just ask.

    I assume you mean SMTP? rather than SMPT?
    It's used to send mail. Generally incoming mail comes via a pop3 mail server, and outgoing mail goes via an smtp mail server.
