Hello,
I have designed a very simple form to take some input from a user. The code is



<html>

<body>
<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="My server URL">
<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="account" VALUE="hotmail"><INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="cata" VALUE="cata_57">
Your Name: <INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="Your Name"><BR>
Comments:<BR>
<TEXTAREA NAME="Comments" ROWS=10 COLS=45></TEXTAREA><BR><BR> <INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" value="Confirm" > </FORM>

</body>

</html>


But the Confirm button is not working. Nothing happenes after pressing the confirm button, It goes dead on hotmail server. I have already tested this code on some other mail providers,it works fine but not on hotmail. Any suggestion how to tackle this situation?

Thanks

Note: The Form will not be located on any server. It will be sent to the user hotmail id through Email.

I do believe hotmail strips the form tags and disables the button by removing its action. View the source of the hotmail email to see what is happening.
