    processing forms using html & email

    Hi All

    I'd like to collect the contents of a form into an e-mail and send the e-mail without using any server-side components.

    I've encountered forms which pop a message up, telling you that the data you entered is about to be transferred through e-mail and therefore is unsecure.

    Is this possible? I have tried using mailto:xyz@xyz.com in the action tag of the form, but the content of the form is collected into an unreadable attachment!!

    How do I get around this?

    Thanks,

    nItRiC

    have you tried opening the attachment into a text editor such as notepad?

    Try that, let me know if it works

    In your form tag you need to add this:
    enctype="text/plain"

    That should clean up the text.
