Outlook issue with HTML form

April 2018

I have a small website with a very simple HTML form that allows user to send his data; then the webmaster receives an email with the data included in the form.

My problem is that, when ever Outlook is set up on a machine, the email button open Outlook automatically.

Is there a way to just have the form send without opening Outlook ?
It opens outlook for me. I would like to send the email without disturbing the outlook as u said may be PHP script or ASP script... am not sure how it works in HTML can you please help me with that.

<form action="MAILTO:ameen544@gmail.com" method="post" ectype="text/plain"> 

<h3>This form sends an e-mail to W3Schools.</h3> 
<input type="text" name="name" 
value="yourname" size="20"> 
<input type="text" name="mail" 
value="yourmail" size="20"> 
<input type="text" name="comment" 
value="yourcomment" size="40"> 
<input type="submit" value="Send"> 
<input type="reset" value="Reset"> 


Thanks to Ameen ASP.Net Boy for this tip on the forum.
