Click on contact button.

It doesnt work :(

This is what I have:

<form action="hawkstra@gmail.com">
<p align="center">
<input value="Name" />
<br />
<input value="Email Address" />
<p align="center">Some additional text regarding contact information.<br />
<textarea cols="5" rows="5">
<br />
<input type="submit" />

What do I have to put?

I don't recommend you setup your contact form this way mainly because you open yourself up to spam. Also not all of your users are going to have outlook or thunderbird setup to send mail from a pop account.

You need to use mailto: action="mailto:hawkstra@gmail.com"

If your host allows you to use a server side language like php or asp then I would use a server side contact script. There are many available, we just need to know what your host supports.
