I'm using a very simple mailto: webform at work and everyone has Outlook open anyway, but rather than just send the form data, some people are having a blank e-mail opened up with nothing more than my e-mail address in the To line. Outlook 2007 settings are all the same across the company (set by procedures when people log in) so I can't figure out why some people have issues and the rest are fine. Any ideas?
Hi, can you be more specific about the problem please?
From what I can see, you have a form which allows every user to send an email to the webmaster. Basically, the form must have a process page like php to send the data to the email address of the webmaster. I don't understand why it will open outlook express. Outlook express opens only when you are using the mailto: command, also, the user must have outlook installed if you want it to open.
The problem is that you need a server to host a CGI Program to send. I am currently working on a project (www.starsforcollege.com) that will be up in a few days that uses an extensive HTML Form. I used the CGI Progam that came with the host (BlueHost - they are fantastic) and it worked seamlessly. The response you get in your inbox is a bit messy, but thats what diligent webmasters are for (plus it's a good way to keep some small but steady money coming in.)
the mailto:<address> is a mail link. not a submission routine for a form. typically, this would be in a link, not a form element. I'm surprised the above example did anything at all.
Hmm .. If you want a server u can use the www.emailmeform.com/
if u already done u can edit it just click your emailmeform address then right click find viewsource then edit some html codes in your notepad.
After you edit/added some codes copy all the codes then put it in your website.
