    Im having form issues.

    I started off with this

    <FORM ACTION="mailto:xXx_Eternity_xXx@hotmail.com" enctype="text/plain" METHOD="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="To" value="your subject for email">

    <TEXTAREA NAME="COMMENTS" ROWS="6" COLS="50" ></TEXTAREA>

    <INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" VALUE="Press Me!" NAME="OK">
    <INPUT TYPE="RESET" VALUE="Clear" NAME="CANCEL">

    </FORM>

    and then realised that a.) if users dont have mail programmes configured they have problems, and b.) it doesnt seem to work from this computer atall- ya click submit and, it brings up a blank new email for ya to type in. Dunno why that is?
    Anyone any ideas

    Im told ya can do this through your cgi bin, but I dunno how, someone point me to a decent tutorial? Or explain it to me? Please? I'lll give ya a cookie...

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    </head>

    <body>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p><?php
    if ($submit) {
    if (!$comments)
    {
    $error = "<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<h2>Sorry! leave a message!</h2><br>\n";
    }
    else {
    mail("xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.com", // Replace
    "needs Form -xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.com", //Replace
    "
    form1 Form -
    xxxxxxx.com //Replace
    Comment message:

    ",
    "From: xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.com\nReply-To: //Replace
