    Sorry - that's not how forums work.

    There are only two ways to process form data -

    1. Use mailto:com as the action of the form
    2. Use a server-side scripting method to a) harvest the form's data, b)
    process it in some manner, e.g., enter it into a database, c) formulate and
    send an email to one or more email recipients, and d) redirect the visitor
    to some ending page

    Method 1 is quite simple, and is also the least reliable. It depends both
    on your visitor having an email client already installed on their computer -
    this eliminates public computers, or home users without email clients
    installed (more and more it seems) - and on the installed email client
    responding to
    the mailto call. It is not possible to use this method *and* send the
    visitor to a
    thank you page as well.

    Method 2a is the preferred method, since it eliminates the problems of
    method
    1, but it means that you have to grapple with server-scripting somehow (ASP,
    CF, PHP, perl, etc.).

    Method 2b would be to use some third-party form processing, like
    http://www.bebosoft.com/products/formstogo/.

    You would have to decide which of these methods is best for your needs,
    but if it's Method 2a, then start by asking your host what they provide for
    form
    processing. If it's 2b, then read their FAQ/instructions carefully.

    Thank you so much for the new direction... yes the ( mailto: ) works but also
    when the email address is typed into a plain html email composer ie: yahoo or
    hotmail or gmail, it becomes undeliverable... is it possible that a .org would
    cause this problem?
